I have a problem with my memory within windows that I do not understand.
I have an AcerM1100, with 2 x 2GB RAM chips and 2 x 1GB RAM chips.
Slot 1 and 2 are Kingston 400Mhz (2GB chips)
Slot 3 and 4 are Nanya 400Mhz (1GB chips)
In my BIOS Im seeing 6000+ kb of Memory, but when i check the system properties within windows 7 i see;
Installed Memory (RAM): 6.00 GB (3.25 GB usable).
What does this mean?
I hope the attached pic help.

your issue is that you are using 32bit
OS and 3.25GB is the most memory it can use

i'll look into switching to 64bit soon.
