Windows 7 64 bit Enterprise version, 8GB Memory, only 4GB Memory usable

    Question

  • I installed and actived my Windows 7. When I viewed computer properties, I found the memory shows 8GB (4GB usable). I updated my BIOS for Windows 7 64 bit version, remapping memory, reseated memory. All of those are not useful.

    I look forward to getting a solution for this problem.

  • Which motherboard do you have? have you limited the used RAM with msconfig?

  • I dont know which mother board it is. but 8GB memory is available when I used Windows 2003 X64.

    I check msconfig, I did not choose Maximum Memory.

  • Run AIDA64, SIW, SiSoft Sandra and share the report. I must know which board you use.

  • No, both editions support 192 GB. The reinstall fixed it, not the Edition. The installation was buggy.

  • Glad to hear you solve the issue and sharing with us.

     

    Meanwhile, I agree with Andre.Ziegler that the edition is not the issue, something wrong during the installation.

  • In my experience, recent machines are configured to support larger memory by default.

    In an older board, sometimes a BIOS option needs to be set
