Re-seat the RAM (remove it and put it back in). If that doesn't work, it's possible that some of your RAM is bad.
Going to try that later. I tried to fix this problem by going in msconfig then in boot, advanced settings and unchecking the maximum memory. I can't enter now the properties and see if it sill uses 3.96 or now it's using 8gb. Everybody said that this is the best solution on youtube and other sites and it worked for others. I doubt that it worked since in task manager it is saying I have 8gb but in that graph it says 4gb in memory tab.
I have been using same RAM since I bought the computer. Maybe it is damaged since there has been a lot of dust. Never cleaned it so... Don't know. That was first cleaning for this PC.
It could also be useful to know the name of your mainboard. Usually there's a name and product identification near the socket of the processor, or between parallel slots under your video card (assuming it's not an integrated model)
I now can't find the information but I think it is MB FM2+, PCIe/DDR3/SATA2/GLAN/7.1 or something like that. I have also DDR3 RAM memory.
I will update you if it is fixed. I never took the RAM out of motherboard so this will be the first time. I will first try to clean it better since I didn't do that yesterday. I don't want to mess up. I will also do other things. It is saying in resource monitor 4gb hardware reserved.
Thanks for helping, guys!
EDIT: I also tried changing some values in Registry files and didn't work. Didn't do something probably. And I forgot to tell you it is on 1600 MHz.
