Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, recognizes 4gb of ram, only 2.93gb usable.
So, here's my problem, this computer used to run Windows XP 32bit with 4gb of ram installed, 2.93gb usable was understandable then because it was 32bit, now i'm using 7 ultimate 64 bit and it still gives 2.93gb usable.

OKAY! I figured out my problem, its probably the RAM-slots, heres my problem now, i have no idea what order to put them in so it'll utilize the entire 2gb that's being "reserved", could someone please help me figure out what order i'm supposed to put them in and simplify it because i'm really not tech-savy, here is my stats from belarc.
