1) Let there be a 4GB swapfile on the SSD to raise my commit charge, so I can use all the physical memory. But a swapfile on the SSD will degrade the SSD faster and slow down performance anytime Windows decides to put something important in the swapfile. (my boldface) The above is a myth. In a reasonable workload and with a properly spec'd SSD flash ...

Ram shows up reduced when you have an integrated (onboard) GPU. If you're not using it, disable it from BIOS. After that it should show 512 MB.

The basic math stems from that Visual Studio on the host requiring 1GB includes 0.5GB for Windows and 0.5GB for Visual Studio. In a VM you have 0.5GB for host Windows 0.5GB for virtual Windows and 0.5GB for Visual Studio. Those are minimums. I personally would not recommend running either Windows or Visual Studio without at least double those numbers in ...

If you buy two of the same product from the same place at the same time it will be fine and will perform identically to a "kit". In most cases they will be from the same batch and be effectively identical. However bear in mind the advantage of kits is more from a support point of view - if one module fails several years down the line, if you bought separate ...

It only supports 32GB of RAM because of the memory controller. It was designed with this limitation. Similar, it is limited to 25.6 GB/s bandwidth.

It depends on how the specific module was constructed. The total row has to be 64 bits, but that can be spread across 8x 8 bit chips, or 4x 16 bit chips, etc. This configuration is up to the manufacturer and is not visible to the CPU.

Try to back to original RAM size and check if it back to normal. Run memtest86+ to check all memory. Be sure to wait until 2-3 full subsequent tests would complete successfully.(It would take a pretty long time, but it will ensure what problem is - hardware or software.)

It's not possible. If a program is loading for 10 minutes, then it means it's doing something for 10 minutes. If it was possible to skip that something, it would skip it. Computers are state machines and progressing from one state into another may take some time. In general you can't just guess in which state the machine will end. Trust me, if it was ...
