RAM 4GB (3.25GB usable)

Post by maynaleen on Fri 05 Jun 2015, 07:26

So yesterday I upgraded my RAM from 2GB to 4GB. As I'm using Win 7-32bit, I followed the instructions to activate "app can handle more than 2GB of memory", as well as used the 4GB RAM patch.
But the problem is, in my PC system, it says that "RAM: 4GB (3.25GB usable)". I did some researches but it didn't help much.
Please help Sad

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Are you sure your compuer is capable of handling a 64-bit operating system (read any included handbooks that came along with your computer) ? You should re-install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 then. The "4GB patch" and the fact that you have 4 GB of RAM are useless if you have a 32-bit Windows.

So 64-bit would be the way to go. Good luck ! Smile
