Installed 4 Gb showing 2.95 gb as usable.

Hi,

 

I have installed Crucial CT51264BF160B 4GB 1600MHz DDR3L 204-Pin Laptop Memory on my lenovo laptop G570 running windows 7 ultimate.

My system is showing total memory of 4 gb out of which only 2.95 gb is usable.

Where as on my previous configuration, I had 3 gb ram installed and its showing 3gb only without any usable ram indication.

 

Do I need to do any modification in the system in order to use full ram or is it ok that 4 gb ram show only 2.95 gb usable.!!

 

Thanks in Advance.

If you are using a 32bit version of Windows, then 3GB is the maximum amount of RAM Windows will use.
