Windows 10 x64 limiting 24GB of RAM to 16GB?
Had Win7 x64 installed with 12GB of RAM, 3x 4GB sticks populating 3 out of 6 slots.
Noticed newer games eat up RAM to the max, so decided to go Win10 x64 since it has 128GB limit for Home edition. Done and done, installed 3 more 4GB sticks, windowsupdated to Win10.
Win10 x64 reports that it sees 24GB of RAM, but says 16GB is usable.
1. Played musical chairs with diff slots/sticks, all check out good, but no change.
2. msconfig - Max memory trick - on OK\restart forgets 24GB was entered, sets 0.
3. Pounding on keyboard - replaced keyboard. Did not help.
