I recently upgraded my win10 x32 to win10 x64 version in order to be able to utilize more than 4GB of RAM.
The OS installation went smoothly, but after it was done the system still did not recognize 8GB, still only 4GB.(At this point i ran a few programs to test whether they were working in the new environment, everything went well!!!)
So I disassembled the computer and reallocated the memory cards in its sockets.This seemed to have solved the problem, as now the comp spec says I have 8GB RAM.This is where i realised that there is a problem:Instead of running more smoothly, my computer with 8GB RAM is now slower than it was before with the x32 version and 4GB RAM.I experience lags even with a simple task as opening the browser/browsing.
I am assuming this is a memory related problem since it started the moment after i reallocated the sticks in the sockets to utilize their full potential.
intel i5 2.8GHz
4x 2GB Kingston DDR3
I am unable to solve this issue and thus unable to run any applications.
Any form of help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
