Win7 64 bit only 3.5 gb ram usable? mng2000 Feb 16th, 10, 09:23 PM #1

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

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.
