My pc started acting up. Then I noticed that Win 7 was showing I have 8 gig of ram but only 4 usable. So I thought that I had a bad dimm. No big deal right. Time for an upgrade. I got 4 x 4gig which is the max allowable for this Alienware Aurora-R2. (Ballistix Tactical 8GB Kit 4GBx2 DDR3 1600 MT/s PC3-12800 CL8 at 1.5V UDIMM 240-Pin Memory BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT1TX0 )
Now I boot up and Win 7 shows 16 gig but only 8 gig usable!
I had a look at Resource Manager and see the first 8 gig is "hardware Reserved".
So any thoughts?
Thanks for any help.
