    Unhappy Monitoring memory

    Hi,

    I work on opensuse 11.2 on my core 2 quad. Although I have 8GiB ram, in the system monitor I see 3.5GiB. I really need 8GiB ram, please let me know why a part of the ram is missing?

    Best Rgrds,

    what is the make and model of your computer or motherboard? does it
    support more than 3.5GB of RAM?

    are you dual booting? what does any other operating system report for
    your RAM available?

    some motherboards require a bios setting changed to see all the ram, mine did and I'm running 64 bit
