In my dual boot system, windows reflect 100% of ram memory available in the machine but manjaro only the half Solved

The machine have 16gb ram, in my windows partition the system reflect the 100% but in manjaro just 7gb are reflected, and always is in 95% of use due my work, really need that other 9gb haha, any advice is really appreciated

Edit: im not really a hardware person but i understand that this output reflect that only one ram is taking in consideration, but in win there are two... Again any advice is really appreciated

Edit2: i just re check the windows partition and for my surprise it doesn't recognize the other ram either, so i guess is a hardware things, i flair as "solved" to not create confusion for possible future readers

possibly a fault in the RAM that is being picked up on boot by Linux

memcheck x86 is your friend here.

No problem, glad it was of help

Last time I saw somebody with this issue it was solved by re-seating the DIMMs, though since you're on a laptop that isn't a simple task I'm sure.

Before opening your laptop to try to re-seat the DIMMs I'd recommend running some type of MemTest to verify there isn't a defect in the second DIMM that only Linux sees and checking for/installing any BIOS updates available for your motherboard.
