    Recently updated from win 10 to Mint 18.3. Installed steam, discord etc for gaming on to find I had an issue id had before with only 4gb of ram. I checked to see how much ram was detected in my pc using my bios and it displayed 8gb of ram working fine. I login and find that Linux is only using 4gb. Tried the mint forums, websites, commands and even memtest is displaying 8gb of ram.

    System -
    ASROCK fm2a68m-dg3+
    Nvidia gtx 1050ti 4gb
    2 x 4gb hyper x 1866Mhz ddr3 ram
    AMD athlon x4 860k quad core

    thanks.
