    Click Open Resource Monitor, then choose the Memory tab and post a snip.

    It should explain everything.

    There you go, for some reason you have 8GB Hardware Reserved, which usually goes to on board video.

    You have a video card so who knows what`s actually going on.

    And you already have 6 GB in use, that`s a lot.

    Add all those figures up and see if it totals 16 GB, 16 GB is 16384 MB, so it`s all there.

    No clue either, every motherboard is different.
