Windows 7: Win 7 64 bit 4gb+ ram access

Win 7 64 bit 4gb+ ram access

Hi All I recently update my old XP computer to a new i5 Windows 7 Pro 64 bit computer. Current I have 16gb of ram install in the system. However I never seen Win use more then 3.5gb of ram. I try loading multiple programs/game and never reboot the system for 1 week and still the ram used never pass 3.5 gb.

Is there a way to get Windows 7 use more of the installed ram? I read that 32bit win have a 4 gb limitation but I have 64 bit...?

Are you using the latest BIOS for your computer, or is the RAM faulty?

Run this tool to check your RAM and let us know:

Open Resource Monitor (type it into start menu search), Memory tab.
Screenshot the physical memory graph at the bottom.

At work so can't check that right now. But I think I know what your talking about. I saw some screen shot in here from other user show something like "4.00GB(3.00GB Usable)". I double check this morning about this and my screen say under Installed memory (RAM): 16.00GB

Sorry but it's kind of impossible to see that info, at least for me. Try this - http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tml#post852738
