I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit OS, and I have 4 GB (2 +2) of RAM on my laptop. However, Windows states that only 2.36 GB of RAM is available. What could be the source of this problem?

Sorry, I'm new to this and do not know what other information could be helpful in resolving this issue.

I have tried 308110-30-resolved-usable. But it didn't work.

With 32 Bit OS, u will be able to see max 3.25-3.5GB RAM.

U can go to BIOS and check for the shared memory with graphics,

and set it to smaller amount.

That 4 GB limitation in 32-bit Windows is for total memory (installed system RAM and any memory from a graphics card). In your case, your computer subtracts 1 GB memory for the Radeon card, and about 640 MB for the Intel card, leaving you with just 2.36 GB of your system RAM available.

Like Nikorr suggested, check your BIOS settings for a shared memory setting. If the Radeon card has discrete memory (not shared with the system), switching your version of Windows with a 64-bit version may get you 1 GB of memory. You would have to talk to your system manufacturer for that, though.
