You need 64 bit windows 7 to use your 6G ram.

ONLY 64 BIT WINDOWS CAN ADDRESS MORE THAN 3 GB OF RAM UNLESS UR SYSTEM SUPPORTS PHYSICAL ADDRESS EXTENSION

Total of approximately 3.5GB RAM can be utilised in 32bit O.S. Here 3.5-2.8=700Mb may be utilised by Onboard devices. Get x64 version of Windows 7 to utilise full capacity.
