Getting max use out of a pc

14 posts in this topic

Just copped 4gb of ram from mr memory as my dusty 2010 dell vostro was struggling with basic stuff like youtube and having nuff tabs open

installed it and checked my system settings and its telling me only 2.96 of the 4gb is usable

is there anything i can do to make all of it usable? seems silly as you cant install 3gb of ram, anyone got solutions?

safe

you looked into your msconfig to see if you got all manner of useless sh*t running on start up?

32bit windows operating systems can only use 3GB (or is it 4?)

to use more youll need a 64bit OS

The graphics card is sharing some of your RAM that's why

I bought my PC in 2010 for the same purposes, FL with no stalling on my VST's, cubase rewire etc

didnt even pay much for it. Intel Dual CPU @ 2.40GHz, 2.93 GB of RAM

still runs everything i need smoothly, simultaneously

reformat & see if it does what you want how you want imo & take it from there

2.96 probably rounds to 3. Think 3 is max for 32 bit systems. Windows 7 is you!

You should be able to get 3.5 GB, so your just about 500 MB off.
