    6GB RAM USABLE 1,4GB in ASUS X452E Series


    Hi all ... I've just added a 4GB RAM on a laptop Asus X452E and become 6GB total RAM. That became my problem why usable only 1,4GB RAM?

    I use Win 8.1 64bit. If you understand this problem please give me a solution.

    It isn't a problem, go to your task manager and you'll find out what uses RAM.

    I feel this is very little supply of RAM and the rest is so big it does not work

    64bit or 32bit windows 8.1 ? Open msconfig, type it at run command and select the boot tab, then select advanced options, is Maximum Memory unchecked? Know how to get to the BIOS, see how much is says there. Sometimes OS uses some or hardware does, but this is too much, usually only 100 or so MB it would use in this case, not a GB or more.

    I use a 64bit win8.1 and I uncheck Maximum Memory. but I was confused when entering the BIOS what should I set. Can you give me the settings in the BIOS?

    I can not give you settings in BIOS, not a setting i am looking to see, it should be one of the pages in BIOS that just states how much RAM machine is showing, all i wanted to know.
    When you are booting and see ASUS logo should be either Delete or F8 one of those keys get you into the BIOS. I am not sure what page it will be on, just do not make any changes.

    These images do show 6GB DDR3 but the usable amount is incorrect. Said had to uncheck Max Memory, did that help in anyway.
    Check here too, right click Start button select SYSTEM should show in installed RAM there on this page.

    system shows 6GB the same as the PC and device.

    RAM and capacity can be read this laptop, but not working. Do I have to install Windows another version and it solve the problem?

    By system you mean BIOS ? Do not think another version or reinstalling windows helps this. Try to re-seat RAM again, meaning opening it again. Not sure if it is a system issue or hardware issue yet.

    yes I've tried to remove and reinstall many times but there was no reaction whatsoever.. The following are promulgated:

    I'm really confused about this.. if hardware or faulty ram, of course the capacity will not be visible.
