you only need x64 bit windows when using more than 4GB of ram. So that might be the problem...though in theory it should still work

well windows only shows what is usable. say, if you had 2x (1GB) plus a single 2GB ram stick = 4GB, this will only read each stick as the lowest installed (which would read it as 1GB 1GB 1GB = 3GB. is this the case, or do you have 2x 2GB sticks

What motherboard?
This happens on a CLEAN OS install?
