Hello Cat, this situation is quite awkward. I am afraid you won’t be able to do the same!
if we have 8 gb of ram installed in pc the we get only 4gb ram
means half of the ram installed in the pc and we cant extend ram of emulators
Great step by step. For me you don’t need to install any external software like BlueStacks Tweaker or anything to increase BlueStacks App Player’s RAM, it can easily done manually from your system.

It needs some amount of GPU power too to work, or even install
I’d had an old PC, having a 128MBs of graphical memory size, BlueStacks refused to even install on that PC.

Your PC will become slow if you do so! Not recommended!

You can bump upto 2Gb of Bluestacks Ram as you are given with 4GB RAM on your PC!
i did it but the settings in my bluestacks doesnt change at all still at 1989 my pc is 64bit windows 10 lenovo had lots of free space and has 4gb more than i think.
How much RAM have you dedicated to the Bluestacks?

Can you specify the current configuration of your PC!

I guess you should allocate 1500MB, that will let you do your tasks peacefully! But make sure that you do not play huge games while your bluestacks is running!
i have 12 gb ram,how much should i put in bluestack?This method work for bluestack 2 or just work for blustack 1?
Allow around 4 GB for Bluestacks!
how to increase in MAC OS
I’d prolly be very late on this but I have a 4GB RAM installed in my PC. How much should I put on Bluestacks?
Put it to 1.5Gb. That will be great as well!
My PC’s RAM is 4 GB but I have very heavy games and software in it like as “NFS: Most Wanted”, “Android Studio”, “IntelliJ Idea”,GTA, XAMPP, Oracle….. and Windows 10…. Then How much RAM should I choose… BCZ even on default RAM I feel my PC too slow now after installing some softwares…
The best optimisation for you is : While running bluestacks stop other things and while running games Stop Bluestacks so that it is not an issue for you. Give 2 GB for Bluestacks and it will eventually speed up the processing on your Bluestacks.

I would recommend that you go for only 1GB or else you gonna mess your PC setup!
