    Satellite L500/049
    Part Number - PSLS3A-049002

    my note book model is this one. When i buy this computer on last December. I install 32bit Window 7 . Then i found out the ram only used 2.84GB.

    So i follow the toshiba webpage to recover my computer and upgrate to 64bit Window7. But final i found out the ram still 4GB (2.84GB used)

    so how can i make the ram from 2.84 to 4.00 GB ?????? = ''4.00GB (4.00GB used)

    Not sure if it solves your problem but try:

    Go Start-Control Panel-System security -Administrative tools- System configuration-Boot - advanced options
    make sure that maximum Memory option is not checked. If it's checked, uncheck, press Apply, Ok and restart.

    Hi buddy,

    Please check the following:
    Go to start > run >dxdiag
    A new window will be opend and how much RAM does it show? If DirectX shows 4GB RAM, everything is ok.

    I think the other RAM is reserved for graphics memory and others.
