So my computer marginally has 16 gig memory ram but now it suddenly say its only has 8gig memory ram installed what does that mean?? Did something burn out or break?? I recently updated my computer to window 8 and is still learning how to use it...also my window 8 isn't activated yet either. so why is my computer saying it only has 8 gig of memory ram now?? Any ideas??
32 bit of windows onny supports 3.2gb if you have 4gb but if he saw 16gb before he deff has a 64bit. most likelk one came loose or its dead. i would try reseating both of the sticks as well as try new dimms
yea i check nothin was loose so i think it mite have burn out....not sure tho.
Take both modules out, put the one from slot 2 in slot 1 and startup see if it boots, if it does take that module out and put the other one in slot one, see if it boots. If they both boot try moving one module to a different slot instead of slot 2 (assuming you have 4)
