Intel i7 7700k
Geforce GTX 1050 ti
16 gb ram
512gb ssd(Windows partition)
1tb ssd (Linux partition)
My linux partition is running Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit
My problem is that system monitor shows my ram as being 4.6gb.
free -m shows:
Code: Select all
total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 4690 1095 2558 301 1036 3015 Swap: 38146 0 38146
However, dmidecode -t 17 gives the following output:
Code: Select all
# dmidecode 3.0 Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs. SMBIOS 3.0.0 present.

I have tried installing several different kernels but all have the same result.
Any further help or knowledge into why this is happening would be most appreciated. Thank you!
