Windows 7 is only reading 3.00GB of 4.00GB of ram as usable RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have no idea why this is happening but for some reason windows 7 is saying only 3.00GB(usable) 4.00GB RAM. I don't get why this is happening and switching out the ram cards as in back and forth doesn't fix it.

    I am using Windows 7 rtm x64 that i got from the msdnaa.
    I like cheese. Do you? you better.

  • Hello,

           Normal, this is a processor limit, and not an OS limit.

           32 bits processor can't adress more than 4 giga. 
           The rest of  memory is used by your Bios.

           Here a very nice link:
