Allocating more RAM

Question

So I got the technic launcher on the new computer, and I try Tekkit and it gives me the minecraft has run out of memory thing. I go to lunacher options and the dropdown menu will only allow me 1 gb of ram (it was already at 1 gb) but my computer has 8 gb of ram. How to I allocate more ram, or make technic launcher realize i have more ram.

Well, actually using 64-bit java would be a good start, no?

Thank you, this was simpler than I thought, I installed 64-bit java and uninstalled the 32-bit. Technic must have automatically switched an I set it to 3 gigs of ram. Tekkit runs great now.

      Hello,
      I'm having trouble getting Tekkit Legends to launch. When I click "play" in the launcher, it validates all the files, but then just goes back to the launcher as if nothing had happened. Here is the log. I have tried resetting the modpack multiple times, to no avail. I am able to launch vanilla through the technic launcher, but not tekkit legends.
      Any help is much appreciated!

      So I just installed stoneblock and when I launched it it uses around 1 gb of ram it also warned me that it needed at least 2 gb or else it had performance problems, after a little while of loading it just closes but I have 16 gb of ram and no clue how i give the modpack more ram. I hope i can get an answer ASAP

      The bug:
      Type of bug: Launcher bug. Reproduction rate: 10/10. Technic launcher keeps crashing on me when I'm in-game due to low memory. It also does lag a decent amount.
      Shader/Resource pack:
      I use shaders and an x32 pixel resource pack. I have the same setup in vanilla Minecraft and it works fine there. Technic will still crash even without a resource pack and shader.
      The issue in detail:
      I can't allocate more than 1gb of memory in the java settings in the technic launcher. I have tried to go to advanced system settings in system and checking out the environment variables. I cannot find "_JAVA_OPTIONS" in there. I can find "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath" in the system variables but that's it when it comes to java. I just downloaded technic launcher again after a long time (around 2 years). It used to work fine and I used to be able to allocate way more ram (I believe I used 4GB back then). Technic launcher is updated. My draw distance within minecraft is set to 8. 
      OS and Java version:
      I have an x64 bit operating system. I also have java downloaded for an x64 bit operating system. I have confirmed this by running vanilla Minecraft (not technic) and putting my view distance to far. According to this post  https://goo.gl/bpK4qw , if I had x34 bit java installed it would just give me an error message but that does not happen with me. I have also made sure to download the x64 bit version of java and I have updated it.

      System specs:  https://imgur.com/a/ryE71LV
      250gb SSD (60gb free space) + 2TB HDD (650gb free space) (I run technic from my HDD). 750W PSU. Windows and my graphics card driver is updated.
      LOG: I tried pasting the log into paste.ubuntu and pastebin but the log is too large and my browser can't handle it (the file size is 25MB). I pasted quite a bit of the end of the log. Sorry but that's the best I can do here and hopefully, it will provide some information of importance: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/ZFGmBvcqh2/
