from the link I believe you are just interpreting things incorrectly. You have 2 gigs as shown in system info. Only 1 gig is available because win 7 takes the memory and puts it in cache for faster access. That is correct. In my case I have 4 gigs and win 7 takes 2 gigs for cache. You can verify this by going into task manager and looking at the performance tab. see snip

Hope this helps

Why is it that not everyone has this 'usable RAM' indication?
