    Question Is it possible to add more RAM to the hardware reserved?

    I was curious if it is possible to do this since my task manager only says I have 117mb of hardware reserved RAM out of the 8gb I have total. I wanted to do some tweaking with this to see if it would improve performance with my laptop.
