Windows 7: Half of ram usable, and low transfer speeds since upgrading

07 Mar 2012   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Updated drivers, and the ram wasn't fixed. Went ahead and reseated it, and hoped , since the thermal paste was just like new, it would work fine. The ram is showing up as 12GB now, and prime 95 temps are about where they were before too. (looks like its getting 1 degree hotter)

Why is only half of my RAM usable?
I have performance problems. Even though I have 4GB RAM installed physically, my harddisk runs like crazy. A moment ago, I encountered the system report below, which says that only 2GB of my RAM is usable. What is the meaning of this? Here is the screenshot:...

Only half of RAM usable
I bought a Vostro 430 around two and a half years ago, and about a week ago, I got this weird message in My Computer Properties - Installed memory (RAM): 6.oo GB (3.96 GB usable). Does that mean that out of my 3 RAM Sticks, only 2 of them are working? And if so/if not, will this affect my computer...
