I'm looking to upgrade RAM from 4GB to 8GB. The stock one is Samsung. I bought the RAM for the laptop and insert it. Now it is showing total memory 8192MB in boot. But turning on the system takes more time than usual and in System information the RAM was showing 8192 MB total but 3.46Gb usable. And in task manager it was showing 4.5GB reserved for hardware use. The manufacturer is Crucial. What I have done wrong? And please post some RAM links from flipkart or amazon.

Welcome to the Forums
As per the query we understood that you are looking for the RAM upgrade for your Lenovo G50-45 laptop.
As per the specification of the system this model has 2 SODIMM slots, try to swap the RAM and check. This is to verify if the RAM slot is faulty. Also try to reseat the RAM and check for the issue.
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!
