This problem looks to be far mor complicate than it seems!
I used windos 7 32 bits on a Acer Aspire 5630 and I had 2GB and EVERYTHING could see that ram, the HARDWARE RESERVED MEMORY was only 2MB! I put more ram so I had 3GB and all system could see all ram the HARDWARE RESERVED MEMORY was the same 2MB! To use 4GB on my Acer I did a fresh install of windos 7 64 bits! I updated the Bios, chipset, graphic card, etc... Now everything see 4GB but windos 7 64 bits could only use 3GB! The HARDWARE RESERVED MEMORY is Now 1026MB!! It did pass from 2MB to 1026MB! I checked to test with 3GB on 64 bits and in that case it show the HARDWARE RESERVED MEMORY 2MB!?! So I put the 4GB again and the HARDWARE RESERVED MEMORY is again 1026MB! On the manual of my Acer Aspire it say that it can use 4GB! To the record, this notebook is runing the windows 7 ultimate 64 bits with no problem about drivers
the only probem is the HARDWARE RESERVED MEMORY issue. Thanks in advance to someone could get a shot out of the usualy explanations.
