I just did a reformat of my machine with new hardware. I upgraded the memory to 8gb. Im using 64bit windows ultimate and for some reason 4 of the 8gb are showing up in system resources as 'hardware reserved'. Any ideas why?
Try this: click "start" type into search "msconfig" the file will appear in the search results. Click on "msconfig.exe" when it opens click on "boot/advanced options" uncheck any tick in maximum memory and number of processors. click ok and them apply and ok again and see if that does the trick
You're welcome. You say "though" as if it is a side thought. "First, make sure all the memory is seen by the bios" - that phrase was intended by me to get you to make sure the memory modules were plugged in all the way.
