Task Manager Showing Less Memory Than Installed One


Recommended Posts

I recently built an entry level PC using a Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200MHz 8GB RAM. However, on Windows 10 task manager shows only 3.75GB of RAM available. Do you have any ideas why this might be happening? Please help me resolve this issue.

My Current Setup:

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit
CPU: i5-7400
RAM: 8 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance 3200MHz
Motherboard: ASRock H110M
GPU: Zotac Gaming GeForce GTX 1650 Super
HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB
SSD: Crucial BX500 480GB

First guess based on your the amount is one of your RAM modules is not detected. Most often this is a physical insertion issue. Power down and take a look.

In fact, I was using only one RAM stick in my PC, not two. And I did what you suggested, but nothing changed. But perhaps my issue has been resolved now. After posting here, I searched online repeatedly for information about this issue and found some articles, such as this one.

The problem was in the BIOS. I updated it to the latest version and the problem was resolved. 🙂
