RAM allocation issue
#1
When I downloaded and installed PCSX2 I allocated 96Gb of RAM to the program for ***** and giggles. Upon restarting my computer and checking how much RAM was available to windows, I noticed windows now only recognizes 32GB out of the 128 that I have installed. What's going on here?

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):

Is there a setup log?
Also yes, I let it go like this for a long time now. Was too lazy to do anything about it.

why did allocate this much ?
pcsx2 won't use more than 1 GB RAM anyways ?

EDIT : worth a try : update to latest nightly

Memory issue does not seem to be fixed. Uninstalled PCSX2 1.6.0 and downloaded the nightly. Will restart system to see if this helps.
EDIT: Restart did not change anything.
EDIT2: I'm going to reinstall my RAM and see if that helps.

I highly doubt it. I took a chance just to see what happened.
I'm starting to wonder if this RAM was marketed as being 64G/card but was actually 16G/card, and pcsx2 just set the system straight lol.

Check with CPU-Z to see what it detects.

Pull and reseat your ram. This your computer issue, not PCSX2 problem.
