My laptop freezes between 2 months so I dediced to upgrade my RAM because as we all know, this laptop comes with 8 GB RAM (2x4GB) and system reserve 2.1GB of them, so I decided to buy another 8GB and replace one of those 4GB. I did this, now having 12 GB RAM but 8.8GB of them is hardware reserved. Why? Did I paid 1000$ just to stuck with a max of 5.9 GB RAM usable?
If you are going to tell me to uncheck de maximum memory in msconfig, I did it already, it was unchecked, but I still can use just 3.4 GB out of 12GB. Please help me with this, the situation is very unsatisified and I am quite frustrated, it ain't a 100$ laptop to exepct nothing from it.
Well, I found out that the current RAMs have 1.2V, while the one which I replaced a 4GB has 1.35V, so it was incompatible with the actaul ones. I'll buy a full kit of 16GB and there won`t be any problems. Sorry for wasting your time, you can close the thread, problem sovled.
