Most Likely reason:

You are using onboard graphics solution, ((Such as a AMD760 Chipset with onboard ATi 3200 for example))

The bios will assign a set number of RAM to the graphics chip. Depending on your bios it may be adjustable, as 128,256,512MB or disabled.

The result is 4Gb RAm with less than than useable under 64bit.

If you install a actuall graphics card and Disable onboard, youll have full use of all of your RAm once again.


So, its there, and the system is using it, just dedicating a portion to graphics.

<<Edit :
After a looking up your PC, it seems its a 740G chipset running a onboard HD2100 graphics solution. So my post above is why your seeing less than 4GB , and it is completly normal as it is setup atm. Nothing to worry about.... Hope this helps>>

I agree, I too have windows 64bit.
I have GA-MA790GP-UD4H which has Sideport.
I'm running x2 ATI 4850 512 which makes 1GB when Crossfire enabled.

If I have one of the following enabled :-
Disabled (Disables the on board graphics controller.)
UMA (allocates memory for the onboard graphics controller from the System memory.)
Sideport (Allocates memory for the onboard controller from the Sideport memory.)
UMA+Sideport (Allocates memory for the onboard graphics controller from the System memory and Sideport memory.)

I currently have it set to Disabled.
I found this under Advanced BIOS Features. Optins to look at are Internal Graphics Mode, UMA Frame Buffer Size.
Of course, these options will vary from motherboard's make + model + manufacturer.

When I did have it enabled, I had UMA+Sideport. Which reduced my memory down like lordnox69 said.

Yes, you are losing some ram and it shows 3.25GB instead of 4GB, That's still enough for other resources etc. As Whishmaster said "Nothing to worry about".

Hi and welcome to the Seven Forums.

Yes a simple fix would be..
1. create a shortcut to the .exe file and name the shortcut Microsoft Flight Simulator or what ever the game is called

To do this do the following:

Right click on the desktop, select "New" select Shortcut.
A cerate shortcut window should appear.

Browse to the path where the game is, by clicking on the Browse... button.
Click on the Next button.
Type in the name of the shortcut ie: Microsoft Flight Simulator
Click on the Finish button.

If it is "Games for windows" it would be in the list.
The following versions should be in the list if installed are:
Microsoft Flight Simulator X Gold Edition
Microsoft Flight Simulator X Acceleration

The following version will not appear in the list if installed are:
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight

2. Go to Start > Games (located on the right hand side)
In there is your installed game.
All "Games for windows" will be in this location.

3. Another way to add the icon back in to the Games Explorer is to use a Games Explorer Tool, basically it adds all the legacy games in to the Games Explorer window like "Games for windows" games do. The simple option is #1.

I hope this helps.
+rep me by clicking this icon if this solves your question.

That I cannot explain with out further details like
The version of the game your installing
for example Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight or Microsoft Flight Simulator X Gold Edition.
One is a legacy game and the other is Games for windows.

I need to know which game name (in full) in order to give more detailed answer.

As I have stated earlier, if it is a legacy game, it will not go in the Games Explorer.

Okay, I have jsut realised that i have my own tutorial on how to add games to the games explorer.
First I'd try to uninstall the game, Remove any remaining folder's that relate to Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

Reboot computer, Reinstall the game.
Check the Games Explorer.
If not there then concider following my tutorial.
and I thought I'd lost it..

Here we go, my tutorial Right click to download

Please note, you will need Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro installed in order to view, or any 3rd party .pdf viewer will do the trick also.

Edit--
You might want to read through this tutorial aswell.
