Msconfig maximum memory issue

Hello!

Msconfig - boot - advanced - unchecked maximum memory - windows 7 detected 4096 of memory (what is true, i have 4 gb memory on my system)

After ok, and restart in maximum memory field there is not 4096 it is 0

Is that normal behaviuor?

My computer - properties - installed memory - it says 4gb installed

Any idea?

Regards!!!

If that is 0 than Windows uses all the ram memory. It's normal.

You should have all the checkboxes within that dialog unchecked all of them. Then you should never open it ever again.

Hi Alojz and welcome to W7 Forums

That is perfectly normal. These options are meant for troubleshooting and not normal running. Regardless of what value is shown, so long as the checkbox Maximum memory: remains unticked (clear), as shown here, your system will use the full amount of memory installed (subject to the limitations imposed by a 32-bit OS, if using 32-bit). Likewise, if Number of processors: is unchecked then your system will use all available cores, otherwise if that option is checked it will be restricted to the number of cores stated.
