Windows 7: Windows 7 doesn't use all its ram

Windows 7 doesn't use all its ram

Hello everyone,

I have tried searching around, but haven't found anything useful. I just installed 2 extra sticks of DDR3 ram in my mobo. In total there are 4gbs of ram.

Windows 7 recognizes it, but will only use 2gb of it. I am using Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. Would I need to reinstall it or something?

Type msconfig in search find the max memory and uncheck it. that will do the trick

Edit: Is it seen in BIOS? what does win 7 say in task manager?
