Dear All I just install the windows 7 pro 64 bit. I have a MBO
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview. [...] 333-GLAN/M
I have 4 GB RAM in two slots.
The Windows is showing 4 GB ( Usable 3 GB ).
I check the bios and it is reading 4 GB. I enable the "extra memory function on bios - remapping" But no success !!!
I have a primary card NVidia Gt8800 with 1 GB of graf. card memory.

So what is the problem??
Do you recommend to get new firmware for BIOS? I have the first version of bios ?
I check the mscofig and ad the mark on box max memory windows automatic. put in 4096.
But when i restart the the box is checked and the number is 0.

I seem to remember a post by someone who had a similar issue and it turned out to be that the DIMM modules weren't seated properly. Perhaps you should try removing and re-inserting the modules to see if that helps. It might also be prudent to double-check the motherboard manual to confirm which slots they should be in - some slot combinations may not work.

I also had this issue, but my issue cleared up after i ran MSConfig and changed a boot option that had to do with memory. Not at my home machine, so can't tell you.

Ah, interesting.

Goran - try this:

-> Start -> type "msconfig" into the search box and hit <enter>

-> Click the "Boot" tab

-> Click the "Advanced Options..." button.

-> If the "Maximum Memory" box is checked, then UNCHECK it, click "OK", click "OK again, and reboot.
