    Win7 64 bit only 3.5 gb ram usable?

    Hi Guy, any idea why my win7 bits can only read 3.5gb? is it due to some setting in my bios?

    onboard sound nope... dedicated ones have rams thou.. lol..

    this is quite strange. sound like a 32bit limit reached but its 64bit. you got another hdd to do reinstallation?

    no, i meant the installation process... but you've reinstalled 3 times, then its really strange, probably mobo issue indefinitely.

    you wanna change the ram slots and try again? suppose you're running 2x 2gb in dual channel.

    will display 4 gb, but only 3.5 gb usable actually not 3.6gb.
