No, you don`t have but 1 MB towards hardware reserved, your good to go. That`s how my XFX board shows with 8 GBs, almost all free.

It`s all about the motherboard.

Are you people new at this or something

How many times are we gonna go over this stuff

Oh ok , Gotcha.

On this board yes it`s reserved, but who knows exactly where all of it`s going, most towards graphics.

This particular ASUS board is only suppossed to support 4 Gigs, but it works just fine with 6.

The BFG 9600 GT connects to a Dell 1440 x 900 and to my Sony Bravia 40" and works flawlessly.

No two system are the same. I have found that if the wrong memory or installed incorrectly will raise the Hardware Reserve. Check using your motherboard manual that the ram is installed correctly. Also double check if the ram is proper. Because my system is different than others this is what I have.

hmm maybe that is problem with so much hardware reserved memory because more than 2GB memory for VGA is crazy .. for example when i use 32bit windows and add more ram that its supported ~3.5GB all the unsupported memory goes to system reserved. It may be same deal with not supported RAM by the motherboard.. it may be waste of ram try with 4GB (max supported ram on your board) will you get same insane amout of reserved memory?

Another helpful thing is this Autoruns for Windows to see what you have running and this for a bit of tuning up-
Optimize Windows 7[2]=Performance Maintenance
I took your advice on disabling some of the bloatware but I am still having issues with having lots of my ram being used up by the hardware. Here is a screenshot of resource monitor that shows exactly how much RAM is being used up by the hardware:


How can I fix this?

The max amount of RAM that is officially supported on my laptop is 8 GB so I don't think that is the issue. Additionally, I was having the issue with having only 2.9 GB of RAM usable when my computer had 4 GB of RAM.

This particular board has no problem, like I siad it only supports 4 gigs and I have 3.50 usable so there is nothing wrong with having 2562 MBs hardware reserved as I actually have 6 gigs installed and windows sees it fine. It`s just a resurrected Compaq Presario

m0stlyharmless Welcome to the Forums

I have no idea why you have so much memory being hardware reserved, are you using on board video or do you have a graphics card installed ?
That sux, it`s like you have bacically no free memory.

Put a desktop gadget on your desktop that shows how much memory is being used.

No. (I don't even have utorrent).
If I want to use a torrent, I use my Linux Mint install (or my Ubuntu VM).

I'm curious, what did you see in the picture that prompted you to ask that?

Remove OSX and you get your RAM back. You are anyhow in violation of the OSX EULA. Legally, OSX can only be installed on Apple systems.
