G4m3r: Hi
Still got to try the update on the BIOS yet I will look at finding a updated BIOS version now

I tried msconfig just now still no difference.
Under System information the following is listed:
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00GB
Total Physical Memory 3.50GB
Avaliable Physical Memory 2.18GB
Total Virtual Memory 7.00GB

Is this amount of virtual Memory normal?
I dont think it should be sharing any RAM with my Graphics because I have a 1GB Graphics card
but I have noticed in some advance settings for my display adapter it says that there is 1535MB shared system memory does anyone know how I can change this?

I'm thinking its got to be something to do with the BIOS or sared system as the BIOS reconises that 3.5GB is usable before windows is loaded


It  seems like you have a 32bit os installed. When you click start, then right click on computer, what does it say on computer type>

Hi
I am running Windows 7 64-bit, 2x Gskill 2GB RAM, Asus P5KPL/1600 Motherboard. When I start up and enter the BIOS it says that I have 4GB RAM with only 3.5GB usable. I have checked eack stick of RAM and both of them are working fine. Does this mean that a upgrade of the BIOS is needed
