Only about half of my RAM is usable

HP Recommended
OMEN By HP Laptop 17-An0xx And Product Number 1KV90UA#ABA.
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
For the past few months my laptop has been running slowly and I've had to significantly lower my graphics settings for almost every game I play. I recently noticed that my usable RAM is always at most around 7GB and at least around 5.8GB. I have a total of 14GB of RAM installed. Is there a way to fix this? I have already made sure that all software is up to date and have run multiple different hardware checks that have all shown no problem. I'm not sure if it is connected, but i can also only use about 15GB of my VRAM out of the 25GB of VRAM that are installed.
