Windows 7 professional SP1 32bit reading only 2.3 GB RAM
I am in a very unusual situation right now. I have a 2 months old Acer E1-571G laptop preloaded with Windows 8 SL and a UEFI BIOS ver 2.15.
Few days back my elder son was playing some game on it & after that my laptop just refused to boot. I tried several options like booting from Alt + F10 recovery and repair/refresh OS but none of that worked for me. I tried reaching out to the local dealer & Acer support over phone several times but didn't got any assistance till date.
Frustrated with all this I went ahead and installed Windows 7 prof SP1 32bit OS by switching UEFI to 'Legacy BIOS' and disabling secure boot. I was not able to install it as the HDD was a GPT disk, so I deleted all the factory partitions and while doing so I accidentally removed the Windows 8 OEM partition.
Right now I have lost my OEM Windows 8 and don't have any backup of it. (stupid of me i know) But the issue I am facing right now is Windows 7 is reading only 2.33 GB of RAM although the total RAM installed is 4 GB. There is no option is BIOS to change anything related to RAM allocation. I have all the latest drivers installed and my device manager looks neat and clean (no issues).
In resource monitor I see 1.7 GB RAM is blocked as 'Hardware Reserved'. Please help me out from this situation.
Thanks in Advance
