I have 8GB RAM (4x2GB sticks), works fine to my knowledge, and shows up
on the main screen, and in the BIOS as 8GB. Good stuff.
However, recently in order to try and improve boot speeds I went into
the pagefile and set it as 0 after reading that it isnt needed with this
ammount of ram. After rebooting I went into msconfig's advanced boot
screen, set the number of processors to 4 and MAX RAM... but it would
only see 3GB RAM.
I installed Everest to check this out and it reports that my physical
RAM is 3GB, task manager reports the same. What went wrong, and how can
I get all 8GB showing? My GPU is a 1GB 9800 card so wouldnt have thought
the rest was going towards gfx. Ive taken out some sticks and tried
again but Everest still only sees GB, even with 8gb, 6gb or 4gb
