Sony Vaio laptop showing 1.6 GB RAM usable while 4 GB RAM is installed??
Posted on 2011-09-08
Today I bought a Sony Vaio VPCYB25AG/B Laptop with configuration-
AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 (1.6 GHz)
320 GB HDD
AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 integrated Graphics
Genuine Windows® 7 Starter 32-bit
And it had 2 GB DDR3 RAM from factory which I got upgraded to 4 GB DDR3 at the shop. When I checked system properties at home, in front of RAM it showed 4GB (1.6GB usable).
I have a program that requires minimum 2 GB RAM on WIN 7 32-bit. When I installed it showed that I have less than 2 GB available RAM so the program will not work as smoothly as it would if I had atleast 2 GB of RAM. But the system has 4GB of RAM and even if integrated graphics have taken even 1 GB of RAM then still I would have 3 GB RAM which is more than enough to run that program. But it still showed that low RAM error.
Anything I can do to solve this?
