I can use very little of my computer's ram Answered
I have recently bought an expensive new ram card for my laptop. I bought it to add to what was on my laptop. But, I can only use the second card (since my laptop has two ram slots), even though the computer has recognized the new card, it won't let me use it.
Here's what it says in system properties:
Installed memory (RAM): 10.0 GB (1.74 GB usable)
I just can't figure it out.
I even looked to see if my computer had set a limit by going to the start menu, typing 'msconfig' and seeing if any limits were set, and I could not see any.
I believe I need to check one of the ram slots because I switched the slots that the cards were in today and when I turned the computer back on the new ram card was able to be used but the old, smaller one was not. I think it is just needing to be cleaned/inspected. If that is the case, this question will be deleted. If not I will update it again if a new problem arises.
Thanks for your help!
