Windows 7: How do I set my ram to use permanently?

Despite almost all new(er) motherboards support more than 8 GB, it is possible that the manufacturer put a bios limit on it which will override what the memory controller/chipset supports (lower only, not higher).
I don't think it's anything to do with the BIOS, even though I've already checked for the sake of finding an answer to my issue and my computer is custom built. Like I said this problem only came up recently, before I didn't have a problem.
But to answer your question my motherboard is capable of handling up to 32gb.

Ohh and how can I get my ram to be available rather than cached? That's annoying.

The Cached memory is for performance, programs and processes which are used often, can cached so the performance of that program is increased.

In my opinion, your memory allocation seems to be completely normal.

Please leave it as it is, your memory usage is completely normal. Cached = Modified + Standby. You need cache, without it your computer would be useless.

You have absolutely no issue, no reason to be annoyed. You should mark this thread solved and forget the whole thing.

thanks Kari and xBluerobot, stuckstuck read this on superfetch

Quote:
There are a lot of myths going around about SuperFetch, the most predominant probably having to do with how Task Manager reports memory statistics. If you open Task Manager (in Windows 7), it'll tell you Total, Cached, Available, and Free. The problems arise from the "Cached" figure, since this figure is generally substantially higher than the "Free" figure.

When people look at the Task Manager, and they see the figure for "Cached" compared to the number of "Free", people assume that only very little of their memory is available for the applications they are about to launch. What they forget is that the Cache filled by SuperFetch and the standard caching mechanism runs on a lower priority; in other words, memory requests by applications will always supersede SuperFetch.

In other words, whatever you see in the "Cached" figure is actually accessible to applications
