Windows only knows what the hardware tells it, and it is telling it there is ~32 GB of Hardware Reserved memory.

However, any support seems unlikely as the board is from 2005 with no drivers for Windows 7 let alone Vista.
There is a BIOS update released in 2008, however, F120: GIGABYTE GA-K8NXP-SLI | Emaplaadid - BIOS
Damn, that's annoying. Incompatible with Windows x64 it seems.

And to stormy13, I already have those nForce drivers installed but thanks anyway.

It looks like I'm stuck with those strange problem for now, but thanks to everyone for their suggestions.

Never did solve this. Probably isn't a problem, just bugs me everytime I see it.
