I just built my pc, Then I downloaded some games to test it out, Everything went fine until "Sword With Sauce (Alpha) (NOT RESPONDING)" I went into task manager to exit it, But I clicked on performance for some reason. Then I looked around to see where do I close programs?? then I noticed something off, It said installed memory 16GB (7.94GB usable) I went onto forums to try to find a fix, Nothing worked, Then I decided to just make my ssd have 32 gigs of virtual memory, for a couple of months I forgot about it, And now its started to bother me again, Does anyone know how to fix this??

I would make sure that your ram slots and pins are clean. If you are running two 16 gig sticks, try the other two slots. Also. I wouldn't recommend using an ssd as virtual memory as it is painfully slow for normal ram speeds. If it shows 32 in the bios, I would reinstall windows. if not. one or maybe two ram sticks are bad. Try switching around slots to see if that makes any difference.

Edit: I just bought I new motherboard. I could not find a fix and it was really bugging me, I am keeping this thread open just so if someone knows a fix they can share it in this forum so my friends and other people could have this issue resolved.
