I have of course read extensively on this issue and of course there are all sorts of opinions out there about if Windows 7 is using the correct amount of memory. However, it seems to me that my computer is using more than everyone else.
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Hp Pavilion DV6 3160us laptop
Quad Core AMD CPU
4 GB of installed RAM. Showing 1.74 GB usable. The performance monitor shows that over 2GB is being held for hardware.
Attaching CPU Z screen shots.
I cannot access BIOS settings to enable remapping (its not even available as an option).
The msconfig fix that people are posting has been done.
Any thoughts on how to reduce the usage?
