  1. Ok so I have 4GB of ram installed and I know its working but why does windows show 2.37gb and ccleaner shows 2.4 gb ( other programs show higher/lower). Any reason why it wont show 4gb?

    You may have installed maximum capacity at 2.4GB. How many sticks do you have and what are they?

    You may be running your computer with 1.6GB or RAM doing nothing!
