Laptop RAM question

  Hedontownee 08:59 03 Dec 2009

Hello folks
I have just upgraded my Toshiba L350-203 from Vista to Windows 7
The system show that I have 4 GB of Ram but only 2.87 usable
Why is that ?
I have run the tests on PCPitstop and all seems ok
Why does Windows 7 not see the full 4gb ram?

It is seeing the 4Gb, but your settings/programs etc are using 1.13Gb - hence you have 2.87Gb free/still usable.

You must be running some memory hogging software.
