Memory Upgrade for....HP ENVY Notebook - 13-d008na

Product Name: HP ENVY Notebook - 13-d008na
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

The machine has 8GB Ram as standard - Note I am Dual Booting Win10 and Win7.

System informs me that I have 8GB of which only 2.11 is usable.

I cannot find data indicating the upgrade possibilities for this machine.

The Crucial tool indicates that they have no upgrades.

 

Can anybody help ??

Hi,

 

Which one is your main boot ? You are running 32 bit OS therefore it won't see anything over 4GB.

 

Regards.

The reason I look for more is that I am running a virtual machine on win7 and with only 2 GB to play with things are a little tight....I am still learning here btw.  Does this mean that - even with more memory the OS grabs a pile for the Video Chip After it sees the 4GB ??? Thus always leaving the circa 2GB left as I have now ??? I was  hoping the OS grabs its 4GB  before video allocation ??

 

Regards
