    Hi Jaredwunder, welcome to the Forum.

    Could you please supply a screen shot of your Resource Monitor. To find the Resource Monitor, click the Start Button & in the search slot type Resource Monitor, then click on it where it is is shown above where you just typed.

    To do a screen shot follow this tutorial.

    Mine showed something like that, 4 gig installed but only 2 something useable and its because windows 7 home premium 32 bit could only use that much, now it has 64 bit and has 3.80 available, Win 7 pro can use a lot more.

    Hi,
    You have a huge Hardware reserved
    Click Start and type in the search box
    msconfig
    How much does it show and can the option be unchecked or lowered if it shows the same amount,

    Yep, you have over 4 GB dedicated to system reserved, that usually goes to the graphics card.

    But, all your memory is being used. :)

    I go to that option and it is unchecked with 0 in the box. Even a reboot didn't change it.

    All my drivers are up to date also, could this be a problem in my actual tower. Should I try changing the order of my ram sticks?
