Windows 7: Usable RAM -Windows 7 64bit

windows 7

Hi all,

Yes this is about 4yrs old,

Here is a pic showing usable ram, and also a pic from the Resource monitor Memory page showing how the ram is being used(sorted by the 'Private' column).

Seriously, I have no major complaints, except when i'm running heavy duty cpu-intensive vst's.

Sadly that shows how much is reserved but not who is reserving it.

Usually the only way to free up that space is to disable hardware. Like if it were a desktop with an integrated video card that was enabled along with your aftermarket one, disabling the integrated would ususaly get you more free ram.

Also, if this were a desktop, your mention of cubase would have me asking about any hardware acellerators for it you may have installed internally which might be using ram, but.. not for the laptop

Might also look in the laptop BIOS for a memory remap option. May be off when it should be on. No idea where it might be located, but maybe a little googling with reference to your laptop model might bring something up.
