32 bit 4 GB ram 3.44gb usable including video ram?

Hello. I have 32 bit Windows 7 installed and it says only 3.44 GB of RAM is usable which I'm fine with... if it doesn't count video ram as well. I have 2GB of video RAM -- is that included in this total? If so, how can I tell which percentage is being set aside for video ram and which percentage is being set aside for general ram?

From the look of your specs, you have a video card that has it's on RAM, so no it's not counted. Now with windows 7 and with a 32 bit OS you max RAM is only 3 gigs to 3.5 gigs usable RAM, that's the limation of the 32 bit OS.

32bit Windows have limitations in RAM. You need to install 64bit version of windows in order to fully utilize your 4gigs RAM.
