How do I make my system to display the full capacity of RAM on board? My Laptop come with 4 gigabytes DDR RAM but when I checked the computer properties, it only shows 2.3 Gig RAM. This is really having a serious impact on my laptop efficiency. Playing some high graphics game has lately been nearly impossible because the system is now somehow slow. Could it be that the RAM is bad? why is it have impact on the functionality of the system?

RAM (Random Access Memory) is heart of the system.RAM has big impact on overall system. Memory is most important resource in the system and the main reason behind it, is windows makes use of it for every single application. 32-bit systems have 32-bits of data. This means that they can address up to 4 GB RAM (32-bits of data). On the other hand, 64-bits system can address up to 16 GB of RAM.
Windows splits RAM into two separate spaces. One part is for Operating system and the other part is for user processes. Windows splits RAM exactly in half for both the parts.
In your laptop, if it supports 4 GB of RAM and its showing just 2.3GB of RAM then contact vendor for checking RAM. It should be written 4 GB on RAM. Otherwise, Operating system must be eating most of the part of the RAM but still it should show 4 GB. You should contact vendor or hardware expert who can open the system and check whether the RAM is of 4 GB or not.
