What do you mean 6 GB of ram is your "Average". You have a certain number. Your car doesn't have an "Average of 4 tires". That is what it has. Are you talking about Usable RAM? That can vary. == Where did you check? Try this, Click on your Start buttom and right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties". This will bring up how much ram you have. See what that says and get back to us.

As a side note, if you have 6 GB of RAM in your computer, you shouldn't be worrying about or messing with ReadyBoost anyway. It won't be of any help to you.

ReadyBoost is gilts and glamor, it doesn't really help performance with RAM. From my understanding it helps more with indexing and searching files...

It was meant as a cache for systems that have less than 1 GB of memory...so the cache that would spill over onto the hard drive could instead be put on a USB flash drive for faster response times.

Once you go over 1 GB of memory, your system doesn't really show a benefit. As you climb higher in memory, the caching becomes less and less, rendering ReadyBoost useless.

It would be nice if the System Specs were filled out completely. This will help us help you.
Ready Boost is B/S.
Remove your Ready Boost.
Start/Search and type resomn it will show how much ram you have and what it is doing.

No I'm not crazy. I found a spider crawling on my tower so I smacked it with my hand a little harder than necessary I'm thinking. I didn't want the little guy making living quarters inside my tower. I found the problem that might help others. It jarred my ram loose. Tall ram heat sinks and a...

HD has 68 Gigs free, yet only shows 45 gigs
Hello. The C drive in my computer is 139 GB (150 GB hard drive). Windows shows that there is 45.5 GB free, but if I select the contents of the drive and check the properties, it says that everything on the drive is taking up 70.8 GB on the disk. But in doing the math (139-70.8 = 68.2) it looks...
