RAM

Hi, I checked the amount of RAM in my PC today. I have 8GB but tin brakets beside it, it says 6.86 GB Usable. I have checked the amount of RAM several times and I never say this issue. It just happened today. Does anyone know how to make windows use all 8GBs as I have Windows 7 64-bit? I really hope somebody helps me as I edit 2K video, and I need every last KB of RAM I can get.

Thanks, Aaron G.

It doesn't help me find what is wrong, as I have installed no software for 9 weeks and updated nothing. I am puzzled about why I have lost some RAM.

Sorry my problem is fixed, I missed out a step in the help file!!

Thanks gengiscant for your help!!

Try msconfig the boot then advanced option. You will see Number of processors and maximum memory,put a tick in the box.

Thanks for your help, my problem is now fixed by following your advice!!
