Hi Im new to this forum and i need some help, i purchased 2 new kingston memories (2GB each) and when i installed them on my intel DG43NB mobo it only shows 2.5GB on the task manager, but when I click on properties on my computer it shows 4GB.
Im running windows vista 32x and have an NVIDIA geforce 8800, also have an intel core 2 quad Q9550.
thanks in advance.

32 bit windows will normally show less than 4 gb. Use cpuid to see how much memory is recognized by the motherboard.
On cpuid ubder memory tab shows 4096 MBytes
You are good to go. Nothing to worry about. When I change cpus, windows won't pick up the change under system specs. It only reads the cpu during the initial installation.
