If you did not do a clean install, I am not sure what you did. There is no upgrade from XP to Win 7 and there is no upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit. You must have done a clean install.
Are you sure you are running 64-bit? That could be the reason you are seeing the memory problem.
Thanks bigmck, Well, I have the upgrade package it contains two disks 32 and 64 bit versions. It is described as Upgrade designed for Windows Vista but does include the warning reprinted below. "If you are upgrading from Windows XP you will need to back up your files and settings, perform a clean install and then re-install your existing files, settings and programs."
I had a clean system, no programs, so no backup etc required. Control Panel reports that I have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Operating System. Are you suggesting that the upgrade is possibly corrupt?
