Ram Question

I bought a 2 pack of Kingston 2gig ram which would be 4 gigs of ram but my systems window says I only have 2 gigs of ram. What's up with that?

Jack, you can bathe in RAM. And 14 Gig is kind of an odd number.

Isn't 14 GB the available RAM, and 16 GB the installed amount, so the 14 GB number is not odd, as it can vary ?

I'm on a W10 OS now with 4 GB RAM installed for this pic

David, you are of course right on the 14GBs. Sorry I looked in the wrong column.

Sorry guys, I just tried to do what you asked but no way I can get it. Just don't have any idea how to do this. There has to be an easier way to get it. I did find the resourse monitor but can't get it to copy to the tread.

Go to Start Orb and type in Task Manger and on that page you will see a button for Resource Monitor, tick on it.
