Does your computer recognize all 8 GB of your RAM?

You could try taking it out and putting it back in.


It recognizes it and is using 7.7-7.8 GB of it.

Something I found on another site that might help:

You may have a bad driver which leaks pool memory. Start the TasmkMgr and look at the non paged pool usage value. If this is several GB, you need to do the following:

Install the Windows Driver Kit, run poolmon.exe and look which pooltag causes the high memory usage. If you found the tag, open the cmd prompt and run

findstr /s <Pooltag> *.sys
and look which driver is shown. If it happens while playing games, update the GPU driver. The ATI 12.10 driver is known to cause it. Install the 13.1 WHQL driver to fix it.

non-paged pool = 7.4 GB

I dont have a GPU. I'm using IG4600 from intel for right now.

If indeed it is a poolmem problem, that'll help you narrow it down to the specific driver. You need some basic familiarity with the command line though.

No, there isn't an easier way. It's a command-line program.

Would reinstalling Windows fix it?

If it's a poolmem problem, it's caused by a bad driver, which is what running the poolmem program will narrow it down to. So yes, in the end, reinstalling Windows will "fix" it.
