Hey guys,

I just had "Windows Vista, Home Premium, 64 BIT", installed and it showed all 4 GB ram available.

I just installed a fresh copy of "Windows 7, Ultimate, 64 bit", and my motherboard, an ASROCK G31M-S supports 8 GB ram, but its still showing only 3 - 3.19 GB available when i right-click on the "My Computer" then i click on "Properties".

I "Enabled" the "Memory Remap" option in the BIOS and nothing has changed.

CPU-Z recognizes the 4 GB of RAM, and so does Windows in the "System Information", but it only allows 3 bloody GB!!!

Some1 plz help...


P.S. I know i've put it in the wrong category, but there's a lot more activity in this section... sry for any inconvenience, but i really want my RAM!...

Double check that you are running the X64 version of Windows 7

Right click my computer, Properties.

Click the start orb, and in the search box please type: msconfig

Right click the result, and select 'Run As Administrator'

That will open up the configuration utility. There is a setting for Max memory - Make sure it is unchecked and that there is no set value. Save.. OK... Restart..
