Hi there I got a new system :bounce:  :bounce: 

MSI mother board - NF725GM - P31
AMD Phenon II X6 1090 T processor
2 * 2GB DDR3 1333 ram (i.e 4GB)
Win 7 OS 32 Bit

But it shows only 2 GB usable and it comes the same in the task manager :o 

So what happens?
Earlier in my Giga byte S series mother board || intel dual core || win 7 32Bit Os i had 2 * 2GB DDR2 rams and it used to recognize 3 GB

Why only 2 GB now? How to get the full 3.XX GB? :pfff:

Your other Memory is used in Graphics (GUI), if you want increase Usable RAM than 2GB then you can change your Graphics Settings in to BIOS Settings then it will Increase and show you the 2.99 to 3.50 is Usable..

Hi i have a few more questions
1. Is it good to change it? Cos i play games and have softwares which take up 1GB of physical mem in the process... and my mem usage goes to 80% sometimes

2. Where to change in the BIOS
