    Only one guess, always chance of faulty in anything, system issue was other idea of possible issues either compatibility or configuration of system. When buying RAM need to make sure it is compatible with your laptop, sometimes ASUS has a list of compatible RAM that works well. May need BIOS update, but i only saw up to 2014, as not sure BIOS version you had, but did not see anything stating for RAM in descriptions for each BIOS update. Unless i or someone else knows solution yet, you can always contact ASUS for free. Believe posted there website with your system here, if not get it again for you. Did you check in the BIOS to see if it states 6GB RAM ?

    Thanks for the solution of jds63 to contact ASUS. I have been contacted ASUS Service Center and followed their advice to change the type of ram that I use and all successful.

    although a bit strange because the system uses about 500MB of ram.

    That's probably the RAM that is reserved for your hardware, although its a little bit much if you ask me.
    Go to taskmanager > performance > memory > corner right to find how much exactly.

    YW, So you bought different RAM modules ? axe0 is correct hardware reserved, mine shows 15.9GB usable of 16GB. Should be only 100 or so MB. Can check back with ASUS looks like about little over 500MB. Be place to see it too, task manger.

    I am not quite understanding this what you wrote now.

    in the task manager there are a lot of 70 or 80 applications running, I did have to bring it back to ASUS for optimize it?

    is there a way to detect running applications that are useful or not?

    A lot of ones you see in services are Microsoft services, would not turn off or look to turn off any of them as may make system unstable or unusable. Main focus be more on programs you have on system other then Microsoft's. First look at Startup tab try disabling startups do not need running, sometimes can be done within program itself which is best alternative, but can not find them do it here.

    To me this had nothing to do with Reserved RAM amount being shown, why are you asking this now instead ? As said look thorugh Startup tab in task manager, also look down at notification area, icons there that are not system icons most likely running when you boot up. Try right click them to go to the options of programs affiliated with them. What do you mean going back to ASUS for optimizing, did you buy new RAM this solve issue or not ?
