Hello,
what does installed memory 4 00GB (3 00GB usable) Mean when I'm actually running windows 7 professional 64bit?

Are you running on onboard graphics.? In that case, 1GB of your system memory may have been reserved by the onboard video chipset to be used as video ram.. Thus the resulting amount of system memory left for the OS to use will be 3GB..
