  • The problem i am running into is i can not make changes to the amount of reserved memory from my ram. I have 6GB of ram and only 1.48GB usable. I have tried to change thru the msconfig and have tried in command prompt to perform same changes but have had 0 success. Any input or additional tricks may be helpful.

    BTW running Win 7 Pro.

  • Hi nadlab,

    Have you run the Memory Diagnostics Tool to check? Please refer to the link below.

    The memory allocation box under MSCONFIG is checked and it should be unchecked.  You will need to open open the RUN window and enter MSCONFIG --> Boot --> Advanced and make sure the Memory box is unchecked.

    Then the graphics driver may be faulty. Try reinstalling the original driver from manufacturer’s official website. Also we could update the BIOS and motherboard driver to the latest version.

    Hope it will be helpful to you
