Win 7 32 bit
 
 
1GB Installed memory, only 1gb usable.

I have looked in several forums, including this one. and every option i have found. dont help me so much ;(

I have also checked the BIOS . but there is no place where i can dissble " Dram over 4Remapp" or something like that.

everything i can think of i have checked.

I know 32bit can't handle more than 2 or 3GB memory, but it can handle 2gb, that much i know.
when i start my computer. it show 1024mb ram . that counts that up. but in everything else it shows 2GB bit 1 usable.
and it says that 1024mb is hardware reserved, ( maybe it is that ? how do i change that ?
I have run a test. nothing wrong with either of the memory sticks
I also have seperat graphic card with 512BM Ram on

can someone help me , please.

Thank you

Errrr I think you mean you have 2gb but it will only use 1. Is the slot for the RAM card working? Also is the Ram chip still working, a pin might not be working
