My laptop uses only half its RAM, no matter what I do. This dumb shit!
What are your worst experiences concerning computer parts?
My netbook said it had 1 GB of RAM, but only 894 mb would show up in dxdiag.
then one day I opened it and added a 4 GB stick. There were no RAM sticks there so I assume that 1 gig is soldered.
Now dxdiag says 3.3 GB of RAM
Thats because most notebooks run 32-bit Atom processers that can't use more than 3.3 GBs or RAM you dense fucker.
How is it that you even managed to open up a web browser and get on 4chan?
I recived an Acer laptop for christmas when I was in 10th grade, under the default options (even under High Performance) Max CPU usage when plugged in was set to 0%.
Everything was laggy and I had no idea why, until I accidentally unplugged my laptop and the FPS for the N64 emulator I was using shot from 20fps to 60.
TL;DR: Check your advanced options for your battery's power plans.
Your controller might only support half-the-size chips compared to those in your modules. For example, they have 2Gb chips, but only 1Gb chips modules are supported by the chipset. Used to be issue with Intel in the Core 2 Duo/Quad days IIRC.
