Hardware reserved memory ( usable memory )

HP Notebook - 15-db1011ns
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

My laptop has 8 GB of RAM but apparently 2 of those are hardware reserved. 

 

Can I change that "hardware reserved memory" setting and make it lower?

 

I attach an image. 

 

I have read some articles about this but none of them worked for me.

 

Many thanks in advance.

System uses spare/available RAM for video RAM (VRAM or graphics). No worries, it will adjust AUTOMATICALLY when system needs more RAM and it will take away VRAM for system RAM.

That's not true for Athlon 300U + Vega 3. My configuration is the same, 8Gb RAM with only 5.9Gb available. When RAM usage hits that 5.9Gb limit, the reserved memory isn't released and system starts to swap.
