Hello, do you want to tell to the same problem?? How much available RAM have you??

If your 8 Gb of RAM is not quite for you you can probably upgrade to 16 Gb..

I have 5.9 GB of RAM, 2,1 being reserved for the integrated AMD GPU. No trick I have tried from the Internet has solved this problem and I have no setting in BIOS that could help solve the problem, And no, the system dosent release the hardware reserved RAM when under stress even if the GPU on load is the dedicated NVIDIA one. I would greately appreciate any solution to this problem because advertising a laptop with 8GB of RAM when you actually can only use 6 is wrong. Thank you for your attention and time!
