  • Can only use 3GB of the 4GB RAM installed

    Hi Daniel,

    You are not the only one to hate Vista.
    I am trying to manage 4Gb and today i am always blocked at 3Gb.

    Going on this, but do you mean you can only use 3GB of the 4GB RAM installed. Depending on the answer, we can split off these posts into a new thread.

    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        There is a thread about this somewhere on the Forums but I can't find it. The answer came from a Dell article in an online news site. It centered around memory mapping and video cards and how a 512MB video card uses that amount of mapped system memory (or something like that. It was a couple of years ago and the OP was from a member who had a similar problem with their 2003 Server) The below link has some interesting info about this. Solution to this problem is to go 64 bit.

            Not the thread I was thinking of, but close. I think it was in the old board before it was hacked.

              Is this 32 bit Vista or 64 bit Vista?

                If it's 32-bit, then it should be normal behaviour, isn't it - the same as in XP?
