I've uprgraded my laptop's RAM to 6GB but when I checked properties of my system it says only 3Gb is usable. Why is that happening?
(on windows vista or windows 7)
- click the Start button , then Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then click System.
- Under System, you can view the system type.
If you are running Windows XP or older there is 99.5% chance you are running the 32 bit version.
So to use all of your new RAM, you will unfortunately have to upgrade your version of Windows to a 64bit edition.
If you ARE already running a 64 bit version of windows something is horribly horribly wrong.
