    Why do I have only 5.88gb memory usable even though I have an 8gb RAM card?


    I have an 8gb RAM in my laptop. However, it shows only 5.88gb as usable. I know some of the memory is reserved by the system, but even then shouldn't I atleast get around 7-7.5gb as useable. I am not able to play games which need 5-6 gb ram properly.My specs-CPU- AMD ryzen5 3500HGPU- Nvidia GeForce Gtx1650 4gbRam- 8gb

    Windows shows 8GB RAM installed but 4GB RAM is usable

    Hi There,

    I've just upgraded my pc from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Windows seems to have detected this upgrade but why does it show as only 4GB RAM available. The following is what I have tried so far with no luck:

    • I have tried the msconfig method on ensuring maximum memory is not checked.
    • physically removed the new RAM and reinstalled it
    Any thoughts/suggestions on how i can resolve this matter?

    Thanks
