Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Check to make sure that all your RAM modules are seated correctly.

Says it supports 16 Gigs.

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P7H55-V

Do you have a video card installed ?

Go into task manager click performance click resource monitor click memory and it will show you what`s up.

This particular pc has 4 gigs but shows 2.94 as useable but as you can see in this shot it all adds up to 4096 MBs.

I believe that translates to the missing 4130 mb is reserved for hardware, likely your video card.
