Memory 6GB (2.0GB Usable)????

Hey, I've been having some issues with my computer recently in that the memory it seems to be capable of using has been capped at 2GB despite having 6GB installed. I have included a print screen to display the problem, any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Have you changed any settings in msconfig? Where you set the number of processors in the boot options. If you change the amount of maximum memory, it can cause problems like this.

If you are still having problems, check BIOS for manual/vendor tweaks on ram/cpu/bus and set them to auto/default. I would also check ram/bus timing with CPUID to be sure all ram chips are working ok.

Max memory should be set to zero (0)
