    Hi
    I am puzzled, as even resource monitor except when it was showing 0 installed etc, has never shown 4GB less than the 32GB you have.
    I cannot advise you on the aspect of the 4095MB - 4GB (4096MB) reported as
    I just tried the ram reliability tester and it right off the bat says it cannot allocate 4095MB
    not having used the program, as I said on my earlier reply, I do not know the exact meaning of that report.
    I am sure CountMike will know when he comes back to the topic
    On the face of it I would take it as meaning - of the ram it sees it cannot allocate it to any aspect of Windows as a whole eg.Reserved, Standby etc.

    Whilst you wait for a reply from CountMike
    1. I presume you have NOT made the mistake of checking the box in msconfig on MaxRam
    2. Further tests may show the answer but you MAY be correct as I mentioned in my post 4
    I think it may be something with the motherboard
    3. Has Resource Monitor continued to record hard faults
    4. I see you have Corsair ICUE have you set any special arrangements for RAM there
    IF SO I recommend you set those back to default and see what occurs.

    I have tried all options with MSConfig and it didn't change anything so I reverted back and the box is NOT checked/ticked. I am however requesting all cores boot.

    I don't see any faults recorded within resource monitor, to be honest I don't know where I'd see them.

    As for ICUE I haven't done anything with it except set the fans speeds and RGB lighting.

    This operating system is only a week old so I haven't even got to the point I want to fine tune it. Still putting the pieces back together after the accidental format.

    I would recommend strongly that you UNCHECK CPU in msconfig
    Those settings are only for testing purposes NOT for any other purpose
    In other words, if you believed you had a problem with a CPU core you CAN use that to eliminate one of the cores.
    USUALLY it should always be left unchecked

    The possible error as I said on resource monitor and explained that it meant the system was accessing the paging file was the small graph window named hard faults on your screenshot of RM

    Ok so I found an update for the BIOS, attempted to install but it failed somewhere. After pulling the CMOS battery and recovering I now have all 32gigs.

    I think just resetting the board would have done the trick and it's the one thing I didn't try earlier.

    I thought you reset CMOS earlier, it's standard to do it when you changing or moving anything hardware wise. In most cases you don't even have to remove battery or reset CMOS by button or shorting pins, there's always a Function key (F5 in my case) to reset it to factory default settings or Enhanced settings.
