    how do i fix this and is that ok?


    i bought new RAM
    G.Skill Trident Z RGB 2x16GB DDR4 3600Mhz CL16
    Windows 10 64BIT

    but on the virtual memory Current Allocated is really low... its doesn't allocate all RAM
    is the RAM defective or its normal ?
    in every pc i saw evne my friend's pc he has 16GB 8x2
    and his "currently allocated" paging file by default is the full RAM 16GB
    why on mine is only 4864?
    it doesn't seem right to me

    That's the "paging file" they're talking about... not the RAM.



    Open Task Manager, and choose: the Performance tab...
    These two numbers, added together, should be the amount of RAM that's installed.

    The page file is an area on your SSD/harddrive, that Windows uses when the RAM fills up.
    Your page file is set to System Managed, so it will vary in size as the system's needs change.


    Here... download the free version of Speccy. Speccy - Free Download
    Install it and run the program. It will show you how much "physical" RAM you have.
    This is mine, for example...

    That shows 32GB of RAM.
    24 + 7.5 = 31.5

    Because after extended use... the page file usually grows.
    It's just a coincidence that it's 16GB... it can get larger than the installed RAM, also.


    See post #4, above.
