Most computers have a ram stick of 4 gig installed with an extra slot for an additional 4 gig of ram stick
indicates a problem in the hard drive so here are some things that you can do
on the desktop under the programs section , you will see a search bar
type in CHKDSK and then enter
That starts the computer doing a check on the disk for problems in all of the files, registration points and disc errors
That check will take around 6 hours as it goes through every file and folder on the computer
When that is finished get to disc manager and do a defrag of the disc
That puts all same data in the same spot on the disc so it doesn't have to search all over the disc for the bits of data to complete a command

SOURCE: cannot see 4 gb ram

Hi Ciccio8670,

If you are running 32-bit Windows, you must live with it. You will not ever see all 4GB of RAM you've paid for.
If you are running 64-bit Windows, you may have to live with it. Depending on your motherboard's chipset, your system may support memory remapping. If so, you will be able to use all 4GB of RAM.

Due to an architectural decision made long ago, if you have 4GB of physical RAM installed, Windows is only able to report a portion of the physical 4GB of RAM (ranges from ~2.75GB to 3.5GB depending on the devices installed, motherboard's chipset & BIOS). This behavior is due to "memory mapped IO reservations". Those reservations overlay the physical address space and mask out those physical addresses so that they cannot be used for working memory. This is independent of the OS running on the machine. Significant chunks of address space below 4GB (the highest address accessible via 32-bit) get reserved for use by system hardware: • BIOS – including ACPI and legacy video support • PCI bus including bridges etc. • PCI Express support will reserve at least 256MB, up to 768MB depending on graphics card installed memory
What this means is a typical system may see between ~256MB and 1GB of address space below 4GB reserved for hardware use that the OS cannot access. Intel chipset specs are pretty good at explaining what address ranges gets reserved by default and in some cases call out that 1.5GB is always reserved and thus inaccessible to Windows.

There are a number of reasons why a computer will seem to run slow. Yes, a RAM upgrade may help but not necessarily.

Firstly, uninstall any software that is no longer required or not really needed. Next, go to Start\Run and type msconfig then Ok. Then click the Start up tab. This will show you all the programs that run as soon as you boot the computer. Many of them will be running all the time even though they are not being used and each one puts pressure on the RAM/CPU and uses resources. Uncheck all programs that are not required at start up. That means most of them, except antivirus software and other vital programs. Check online start up lists. They will tell you what to keep and what you can uncheck.

Next, do a full adware and spyware scan and delete everything that is found. As the hard drives are quite small by today's standards, use the disk defragmenter by going to Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Disk Defragmenter and follow the instructions. That will tidy up the disc and the computer should help it to run better.

These are things that can easily be done before upgrading the RAM. If you do upgrade, it may not make any noticeable difference unless the new program they have installed is resource hungry. You can check your CPU usage by doing the following. Press CTRL+ALT DEL click Task Manager then click the Performance tab. The CPU usage will be seen on the top left. If it is above 60% the computer will be running too slow. The lower the percentage the faster your computer. If it is too high then a RAM upgrade may improve the speed.

Finally, make sure the upgrade is suitable. Not all computers will accept upgrades to 2GB. Visit this site >HERE< and run their scanner. It will tell you the best upgrades for the computers and will recommend the chipsets.

Hope this helps....

I just installed 2 1gb chips in my mt3705 and it works perfect  so it might be a problem with your hardware.

I'm not a guru, but your predicament is pretty simple.
Depending on your OS (XP 32 bit, XP 64 bit, Vista), the OS will be able to recognize a certain amount of RAM. XP 64 Bit will be able to recognize up to 6GB of RAM. Vista, I have no Idea. 32 Bit, what you're seeing right now.

Sorry for wasting a bit of money on that last stick.

Im not sure if its the problem or not. I have gone through 3 DROID X phones due to it locking up and being very slow. But after I received my third phone and it started in doing the same. I took it out of...

I had two Droid X phones that both locked up often. I never used a case, but I found that running custom Launchers (like LauncherPro or ADW) caused it to freeze more often. Also, if you feel that it's running slow, check to see if you have any apps that are constantly running in the background needlessly. Verizon's proprietary apps tend to do this a lot.

My utube keeps freezing while watching my line dancing videos its stops during the dance.

YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.

For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:
1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible

2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.

3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.

4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.

5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reg in out and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

New out of the box on/off switch was bad, they fixed it however when they shipped it back to me i wasn't home had to go to a Fed Ex depot 30 miles away. Had it working for 3 mos. started freezing up....

As an employee in WIPRO and working for HP i ask for forgiveness. Its all because of the competitiveness that we never stay on a call for a long time and try to skip the real troubleshooting.
Set the defaults in BIOS:
1: keep tapping on f10 while starting the computer to go to BIOS. Press F9 and then F10 to save the defaults and to exit out of BIOS
2: Disable Startup services. Type msconfig.exe in RUN window . GO to the startup tab and Disable all
3: If you are able to go line. Update the BIOS.
GO to and in Support and Drivers page, put the P/N# and select Download Drivers and select the OS type.
Install the latest BIOS
3: Disc cleanup and Defrag the Hard drive using respective tools in Start>>Programs>>Accessories>>SystemTools>>>>
4:In Run Window >> CMD >> run as administrator >> CHKDSK>>enter
5: Install Malwarebytes anti malware and Advanced System Care and Run these
