  1. You said that Windows 7 is reporting:

    installed ram 6gb

    So windows 7 knows and sees that 6 GB is installed.

    The 4 GB Usable is what remains after Windows 7 has allocated/reserved 2 GB for its own use for things like the Operating System kernel and disk caching and any other memory resources it thinks it needs.
