More about usable
  1. Did you install the 64 bit version, or the 32 bit version? Your processor has nothing to do with it.
  2. i installed the x62 bit
  3. The x62 bit?

    You mean x64, right?
  4. yeah
  5. Sure you got x64 man? Check in sytem properties. And what are you using to see your amount of memory detected?
  6. Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 Ghz

    Installed memory (RAM) 4.00 GB (2.94 GB usable)

    System type: 64-bit Operating System
  7. Check your BIOS for a setting called something like "memory remapping". If your BIOS has this, you will have to enable it. Read your motherboard manual.

    Check if the Intel HD graphics are installed, if Yes.

    Then check your graphics memory in dxdiag.

    lemme know the graphics memory you seeing there in dxdiag and also wat your vendor specified about graphics on ya machine.
