I have installed Ballistix Sport 8GB Kit (4GBx2)  2 times.

I put the first 2 in slot 1 and slot 3 AND the other 2 in slot 2 and slot 4 of my Motherboard (Z97x gaming 5).


So I basically should have 16gb, but in Task manager 2gb is already 50%... 


In the other tab I have 8 gb usable?


In the next BIOS and in the system description I have 16gb installed


This is what the resource manager shows: (Arbeitsspeicher = RAM. only 7.46 gb avaible)



How can I use all of the RAM :|

Posting the same problem twice in different sections of BC is not reccommended as it tends to lead to confusion. I believe that this is more likely a hardware problem than an OS problem so I am closing this topic .


Anybody interested in following up on this problem is asked to refer to the other topic which is here -
