Installing ram memory


Well-Known Member
I have added 4 Gb RAM but memory to the 4Gb of my Intel 3 64 bits processor desktop. In the Bios I read 8 GB RAM memory but looking to the memory usance in the task manager it seems that only 3 GB is available. But also there the header says that 8 GB is available?? Do I have to change somewhere some settings?

Open a powershell prompt and type the following
Get-WmiObject win32_operatingsystem | select Osarchitecture if it does not say 64-bit that is why. A 32bit OS can only address 2^32 bytes or roughly 4GB this can be reduced for video and system reserved memory.

Thanks a lot for your comment. Indeed running the 64 bit option shows that 8 GB RAM is available!
