Didn't even cross my mind that someone would have 6gigs in 32 bit and that it would work as he said in vista "when i had vista installed on my box it wasn't showing this problem...

Maybe he had Vista x64 ?
Then clean install of Win 7 x86 ?

Hard to imagine 32 bit Vista originally installed, to run 8 cpus with 6 gigs...

Did Vista support the IA64 architecture ?

Windows 7 64 bit not reading my 6GB

I just installed Windows 7 64bit and it's not reading my 6GB.

In the system info - it reads: 6.00 GB (3.12 GB usable)

In the Task Manager it reads: Physical Memory, Total: 3199

My mobo is Asus P5W Deluxe.

Would like to find out if I can access the other 3 GB!

Try the bios setting for max memory it should be unchecked.

IA64 only runs on Itanium CPUs. Which only run apps written for that.

Having JUST been laptop shopping... A lot of laptops and even some desktops are sold with Vista 64 on them. I bet most people don't even realize they are running it unless they specifically look for it. It was surprising.

windows 7 x64bit build 7100
 
 

hey im having some issues. i have 4gb of ddr3 1600 mhz (i would have but 1 stick of my trip channel doesnt work ) but my version of windows x64bit, build 1700 reads only using 1.99gb of the 4gb total memory.

i know it registers 4gb 'cos it all checks out in the bios. AND because it says total memory is 4gb. but when i go into task manager it only reads 2gb being used.

is this just windows 7 doing some wierd "im only gonna TELL you im using less ram" thing or is there a fix or an update to fix this.

thanks

Installed memory (RAM): 2,00 GB (1,00 GB usable) ^^ Anyone know how I can solve this? Task manager reports only 1 GB is in use, I think the second GB would really give me a boost to play League of Legends. Any help would be great.
