More about 99gb usable this
  1. How much RAM does it show in the BIOS?
    Have you tried to change the value of maximum memory or untick the maximum memory box in the MSconfig?
    If not, type 'msconfig' in the run command box.
    Got to Boot Tab, in it Advanced Options there either untick the maximum memory box or then specify the amount of RAM it shows in the BIOS there.
    Click OK, then Apply, and then reboot
    Check for new values now....
  2. The Problem is still occurring.
  3. Firstly, one problem at a time....
    Did you manage to increase the RAM to it's 3+GB capacity for usable RAM?
    After that, check the Taskmanager and see what processes are eating up the maximum amount of RAM. If it's not too much of a problem, a good screenshot of running processes would be appreciated here.

    Might be a problem with your motherboard if 2 of the slots aren't working, also by this I'm assuming that you are using 2 sticks of ram for your setup. Check how much ram your computer detects (right click on computer -> properties, or check task manager). Best of luck with this
  5. Yes i managed to increase it to the max amount of ram i have alyoshka and do you want the screen shot with show all processors from all users ticked or unticked?
  6. Both would be great.... One with it ticked and one without it ticked.
  7. Any Luck?
  8. From what I see you have too many applications that autostart. You need to stop them from autostarting, like all the Apple stuff. Another thing try to get that process count down to around 50, you can imagine what all might be unnecessarily coming on after looking at the Taskmanager.
    Try a few tweaks for Chrome too, it's taking up too much of memory.
    Increase the size of the Pagefile, right click My COmputer-- Properties-- Advanced system settings---Advanced Tab (Performance)---- Settings--- Advanced Tab--- Virtual Memory (Change)
    See how much is allocated Minimum Allowed, Recommended and Currently Allocated.
    Set the size to Recommended , click SET first after entering new values, then OK, then Apply then OK. Then Apply and then OK.
  9. Ok thanks for all the help mate :)!!
  10. I had searched the solution to solve the same problem spending about 3 hours.
    Finally, I found the solution!

    "Check whether your memory card is inserted tightly."

    it may exhaust you,but maybe it is the answer.
  11. I think you mess up with boot advanced option before this issue
    if this is the case try flashing or updating your bios then restart lets
    see if this one will work.
