  1. Where in the task manager is this said? I don't remember the task manager reporting reserved memory for hardware.
  2. 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.
