Not all RAM usable

Just bought a new Acer laptop running windows 8 64 bit with 6 GB of RAM installed. Windows is saying only 5.82 GB is usable. How can I fix this? I checked the BIOS and found nothing related to RAM.

Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    Does this laptop have "Intel HD" graphics? If so the system is using RAM from your "6GB" to serve as video memory. This is perfectly normal and can be set to smaller or greater values in your BIOS with most laptops.
  2. Yes, it has Intel HD 4000 graphics. I suppose this must be it. Thanks for the reply.
