Memory warnings and crashes when playing games Please HELP

So whenever I go above 70% memory usage I get low memory warnings. After awhile I sometimes crash or blackscreen and have to restart my computer. I have 10 GB of ram so that shouldnt be an issue. I have 2x 4GB and 1x 2 GB sticks. Is there any way that one of my sticks isnt working or something else?

Specs:
intel i7 3770 3.5ghz
evga gtx 750 ti sc
10GB ram

  1. Do you have windows 32 bit?

    no, windows 10 64bit
  3. Yes, the DRAM can be a problem, obviously with 10GB you have mixed sticks (always best to get all your DRAM in a single package), might try raising the DRAM voltage about + 0.05 and see if that helps ;)

    sorry I'm kinda dumb when it comes to computers. How would I raise the DRAM voltage?
  5. Need to go into BIOS and find DRAM voltage - if at 1.5 just raise to 1.55

    It does not give me the option to change the voltage. I'm using an hp computer if that helps.. I searched it and found that HP does not let you change the voltage.
  7. HP s generally all have locked BIOSs, so not much you can do - could try only the 2x4 GB or get a bigger set of DRAM
