    16GB RAM, only 8GB usable XFcvd0hvvcv7R1gXo37vwa5Dn3zLLZIjWaaK5QItf4g.jpg

    I'm new to these PC things so I'm sorry for the dumb question. I just got a gaming PC as a gift for christmas, and I checked everything (updates, etc.) and it seems everything was fine, until I checked the RAM, it says 16GB installed but only 7.95 GB usable, it also says in the resource monitor that 8241MB is hardware reserved. Is this normal? What is the problem that makes only 7.95GB usable? Thank you so much
