Where in the task manager is this said? I don't remember the task manager reporting reserved memory for hardware.

Must have went to task manager > performance tab and clicked the Resource monitor tab then went to the memory tab.

You can try pressing windows button (or click start button)
- type: msconfig
- Go to "Boot" tab
- Click advance tab check the "maximum memory" box then OK
- Then reboot

If that doesn't work then check in your BIOS to see if you have "memory remapping" enabled.
