Windows 10 Usable Ram Fix

I know WEI isn't the best indicator of performance, but this difference confuses me. December 26, 2012 thesilentman Well, why do we have a RAM limit then?

The thing that baffles me though, is the 4GB of RAM (DDR3 1600) I got only rate as a 5.9 in WEI. There may be a problem with one of the memory channels. I just had an idea: is it possible, that Windows 7 Starter edition can only utilize max. 2GB of RAM?! How To Increase Usable Ram I have attached the system information to this as well.

In the 'little' model the counter ran up to 5000. As long as the components are there to perform the task(s) needed, of which I needed this 16GB RAM upgrade for running VM's, that's all that matters. In any case though, i find it better to not use 1GB sticks when possible. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/321581-30-installed-memory-usable December 26, 2012 Robynsveil That 32-bit Windows can't see more than 3.1 to 4 gig is best explained here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dcook/archive/2007/03/25/who-ate-my-memory.aspx?Redirected=true That there is such a significant difference between Home Edition and

I didn't have this problem when I had 3GB, 6GB, 9GB or 15GB of RAM installed.

Ditching the 1GBs made the system seemingly faster overall, if you're using 1GB sticks as well perhaps thats a problem as well, not just with whats being shown. http://aurdev.com/windows-10/win7-slow-to-create-and-rename-folders.html Exactly how much all depends on how much total memory you have, how much hardware is installed, and how the BIOS is configured, amongst other things.

Seems like your friend is more of a moron than WEI.

There's a difference between ignorance and stupidity. ;) In this case the stupidity is that WEI thinks an SSD solved Ram 4gb (3.12gb Usable) windows 7 x64 (3.12GB usable) 8.00GB solved Only 3.12GB of 4GB usable RAM solved Installed Memory (Ram) 32.0GB (7.95 GB Usable) Help, RAM problems.

  • I do know that by removing one of the 2GB sticks, it dipped to 5.8, so was disappointed to see zero improvement.
  • Ditching the 1GBs made the system seemingly faster overall, if you're using 1GB sticks as well perhaps thats a problem as well, not just with whats being shown.
  • And yeah Verst, i had previously mentioned that.
  • Using 3x1GB kit and 3x4GB kit produces 15GB of usable RAM.
  • A friend of mine was able to raise their SSD WEI score by defragging the SSD...
  • It's an ageold trick - IBM decades ago sold 3 'different' officecomputers with different software at different prices and different speed.
  • I don't know why Microsoft even put it there.

Software would be marked with "minimum WEI of 3.0", and then you'd know that if you have WEI 4.5 you can run the program. I'm writing this on that OS with 4 GB of RAM and the OS can ‘see' it all (4191328 K). If your PC performs well and can do what you want it to do, who cares what WEI is saying?

Usable memory is a calculated amount of the total physical memory minus "hardware reserved" memory.

Using 3x2GB kit and 3x4GB kit produces 18GB of RAM with 16.5GB usable.

The second HDD is 1 TB. your VRAM (memory on board your GFX card) will also need to be deducted from the 4gb on an x86 system. While there are two or three other 'extreme' C2Q models, these are very high wattage (130W or higher) & likely also very heavy on the wallet, even today, probably for hardcore Why does 3GB make a difference when Windows 7 Ultimate x64 can address up to 192GB of Memory?
