Ram Problem / 4gb Of Ram As 1.99gb Usable

Windows is only showing my 4gb of ram as 1.99gb usable. It used to be high although I cannot remember the value. I know that for sure because my ram score used to be 7. something and my hdd was lowest score of 5.9, now ram is the lowest with 5.5. Any ideas?

Windows 7 10gb Ram 5.99gb Usable?
I just installed more ram for my computer, i was running with 8bg total with 4 2bg sticks and i had some troubles with my first ram slot not working correctly so i switched to 2 4bg sticks a 2bg stick in the three remaining. after checking my ram available it is showing 5.99gb available. Just wondering if there is some tips as to why this might be happening? my bios hasnt been updated since 2009 and is a ASUS P7P55 LX.

Edit: my mother board is a ASUS P7P55 lx sorry.

Windows 7 Not Using 4GB Of RAM - Only 1.76 Usable
I have 6144mb of ram on my Compaq Presario CQ62 402AU. So I have the 2GB Hp stick which came with the laptop (2GB DDR3 1066MHz) and I have a 4GB stick from G-Skill). So there should be 5.76GB usable, but I only have 1.74GB usable. This is what is it when I only had the 2GB. The Bios says there is 6144GB in there. Windows says there 6.0GB in there also.

So what I have tried:
- Running Mem Tests (HP one which came with my laptop and Memtestx86)
- Taking out the ram and putting them in there sorts again
- Taking out the ram, running a pencil eraser over the connecters and then putting them back in
- Doing testing so Only 1 is in and try that in both slots for both sticks of ram
- Swapping the ram positions
- Making sure that Max ram is not selected in Msconfig

So basic System info you may want to know (Most of my profile info is there of my computer) Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit SP1 Installed Memory (Ram) (This is from the basic system info page) 6.00GB (1.74GB Usable). The odd thing is that it worked fine for a while. Today I went to school with the 5.76GB and I come back home 8 hours later, the computer has only been on lock for this time and there is only 1.76GB usable.

Installed 4Gb Ram, Only 2 Gb Usable?
My motherboard is the ASUS Maximus III Formula, using Intel Core I5 760. And I recently did a dual boot on my system. One copy of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my original hard drive, and a Windows 7 Home premium x64 bit on another hard drive ( Hitachi ) and after a month or two, I had to format that ( Hitachi ) hard drive as I needed it for extra storage and now I'm getting only 2 Gb usable RAM but I installed 4Gb.

4GB RAM Installed And 1.75GB Is Usable
I have 4GB of RAM installed in my computer (the stock RAM; I have changed no hardware since receiving the laptop), but Windows tells me on 1.75GB of it is usable. Things I've tried so far, to no avail, include. Going into msconfig and switching off "Maximum Memory", Enable Memory Remapping in Bios (Bios has no Memory Remapping option)
Switching RAM Slots One RAM stick at a time (laptop would not start � tried both sticks in both slots) Ran Microsoft memory analysis? Updated some drivers

4GB RAM Installed But Only 3.5GB Usable On PC
My PC says it has 4GB of RAM installed but only 3.5GB are usable, I have windows 7 home premium X64.

CPU: Athlon II x3 Unlocked to Phenom II X4 @3Ghz.
Motherboard: Asrock N68-VS3-UCC
RAM: 4GB DDR3 generic brand.
HDD: 1x 320GB SATA, 1x 250GB SATA and 1x 250GB IDE
GPU: XFX ONE 5400 series

Windows recognized the full 4GB and the whole 4GB were usable but when I checked about 2 days ago it said that only 3.5GB were usable. I started to do a little research and I found out that my GPU might be using Hyper Memory so i tuned off my system, removed the GPU and when I went to see how much RAM was usable it said 4GB installed 3.25GB usable. So its not my GPU.

4gb RAM Installed, Showed 2gb Usable
I have 4gb RAM on the Dell XPS 1530 machine.

I installed Windows 7 64 bit from on two partitions.

The first one, a fresh install, Computer Properties shows 4gb RAM, the same value (4096) is also showed in Task Manager.

The second one, I upgraded from Vista 64 bit, it shows 4gb RAM (2usable), the same (2048) is showed in Task Manager.

I heard the story about Memory Remap, my mainboard didn't have it. However, the first case, it automatically recognize 4gb RAM, I guess Windows7 manages everything. Is there anyway I 'turn on' the rest 2gb in the second case?

4gb Of RAM Installed, But Windows 7 Says 256 Usable
Earlier tonight I rebooted and noticed that it took an extremely long time to boot. Almost 10 minutes to get the desktop completely loaded. So I checked task manager > performance tab and it says I have only 256mb of RAM. So then I checked My Computer > Properties and noticed it said "Installed Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (256 MB Usable)" I've had Windows 7 installed for a good 2 weeks now and never had a problem, until I rebooted tonight. I checked my BIOS and all my sticks show up. I DO NOT have a shared memory video card. Memory test checked out fine. I haven't installed any new hardware, nor touched the sticks at all. why Windows 7 started doing this?

32 Bit 4 GB Ram 3.44gb Usable Including Video Ram?
I have 32 bit Windows 7 installed and it says only 3.44 GB of RAM is usable which I'm fine with... if it doesn't count video ram as well. I have 2GB of video RAM -- is that included in this total? If so, how can I tell which percentage is being set aside for video ram and which percentage is being set aside for general ram?

RC 2.75 GB Ram Usable From 4 GB
Im running Windows 7 RC 32 bit on an HP Pavilion TX2510us Laptop With an AMD Turion x2 ultra 64. At first I had 3 GB of ram installed. A 1 Gig stick And a 2 Gig stick. The System Recognized all of it and used it. I then took the 1 GB out and replaced it with a 2 Gig stick, making a total of 4 GB max. Now when I go to the system properties, It says 4GB but only (2.75 GB Usable) Why is that?

Is it normaly supposed to use more then that? It had also crossed my mind that it might have something to do with my graphics card, (ATI Radeon HD 3200) because the index score on it has gone up. Not sure though. So I Figured I can try the 64 bit version. But can I run it, Givin the type of processor I have.

I know it says 64 on the sticker, but I have been told that just because it says that, it doesn't mean it is 64 bit capible. Im download the 64 bit version now, Hoping it installs.

4 GBs Of RAM Only 2.84 Usable?
For some odd reason, my new Windows 7 32 bit laptop is constantly using 40+ precent of it's installed RAM. I checked my computer's properties and found that Windows is only using 2.84 gigs of my computer's 4 gigs of ram. Is there any way I can force it to use 4 gigs? Or at least, force it to use more than my current amount? I have attached a screenshot of my computer's RAM specs.

Only 2.9GB RAM Usable?
I have quite a new ASUS laptop, which came with 64bit windows 7 and I took off and installed my copy of Windows 7 32bit (I didn't see the point in having 64bit on a laptop).

When I first installed the OS and everything Windows said I had 3.25GB ram usable or something like that which is normal but for some reason I now only have 2.92 usable and I don't know why >.< (this may have happened when SP1 was installed)

The specs are:
Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU P6100 @ 2.00GHz
4GB DDR3 Ram
Intel HD Graphics
Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset
320GB 5400RPM HDD

3.26 GB RAM Usable On 64 Bit
Okay, this is really weird. Previously, I had had a ordered a kit of 4GB ram with one defective stick. After installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit with the good stick, I RMA'd the kit back to newegg. The exchange arrived today, and after installing the new kit of ram, windows only recognizes 3.26GB of it! Under the system information panel, it says:

Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.26 useable)

despite me having a 64 bit OS.

Whats up with this? I Memtested the ram and it shows up as only 3255 MB in there also.

Does anyone know why?

Why Only Half Of RAM Usable
I have performance problems. Even though I have 4GB RAM installed physically, my hard disk runs like crazy. A moment ago, I encountered the system report below, which says that only 2GB of my RAM is usable.

6 Gigs Of Ram But Only 3.25 Usable
I updated my XP 32 OS to windows 7 64 bit professional. Everything works fine on this upgrade. BUT when i go >start>mycmputer>right click and select properties i see 6 gigs but only 3.25 GB usable. Any way i can use the rest of those gigs. When i bought windows 7 two days ago i bought 2 stick of ram with 2 gigs each stick. so i have (2) 1 gig stick and (2) 2 gig sticks.

Like i sed my PC (Alienware was built in Dic2005) originally was made with 32 OS xp if someone can guide me on how to get my info of my mother board I will be glad to follows those steps so i can post them here and hopefully gets some help. If not I just will return the extra gigs I bought.

PS- I reinstall windows 7 from scratched but with OS 32 bit and I could see the same 6 gigs but only 3.25 gigs usable.
