Half Ram Reserved By Windows

  Alex Lowry 14:06 21 Mar 2019

Hey, so basically I have 16gb of Corsair Vengeance DDR4 on a Tomahawk B450 Board and both sticks are detected but half of my RAM is being reserved by windows apparently. However when attempting to boot with only the reserved stick I get a black screen. Implying that it's broken, but then surely my PC would not detect that the ram is there?? And I have tried the maximum memory trick. Any help appreciated.

what is maximum memory trick never heard that before ! To eliminate the possibility of faulty ram type mem test in search box and run the program , if windows reports faulty memory ( it will cos I had one ) remove 1 stick and do the test again to find out which one is faulty. run dxdiag as well.

if you don't have faulty ram this article may explain whats going on.
