Missing System Ram and Extra Graphics Card Ram

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Dissposablehero, Dec 13, 2007.

  1. I have 2gb of system ram and am always showing 55%-60% being used by the
    system even when there are no other processes running - for example; when i
    first installed vista.

    However when you look at this:

    youll probably notice the abundance of ram for a Nvidia 7800gt.

    I have read somewhere it is something to do with the bios, and i know this
    to be a complete lie cause it never did that on XP. Also as you can see there
    is nothing else running to use over a GB of v-card ram.

    So can anyone help me get my ram back?

  3. Why is it you dont get a choice though, it retarded that windows just
    seemingly does what ever it wants and you have to like it - just like when it
    blocks a startup program, you dont get to enable it, it just gets blocked
    cause of that windows defender program. I am starting to see why allot of
    people hate Vista.

  4. Well then, you might as well take half the RAM out of your system and put it
    on the counter or tabletop or desktop or whatever. Why force RAM to be
    empty just because you think it's prettier or more efficient or ... ??? If
    you don't have a use for it, Windows will try to find a use for it until you
    need it. That's efficiency.

  5. its not efficient when im encoding a dvd and it takes twice as long and i
    cant use my pc cause all my system ram is being raped by windows is it?

    Can you just tell me if there is a way to sort it so i can make my own mind
    up. If it is better then ill change it back.

    Also can you tell me a solution to the problem with windows defender
    blocking programs that i want to run even if windows doesnt at start up.
