Please fill out your system specs.

Laptop? Looks like 1GB is being reserved for hardware, I suspect Video Card is sharing system memory.

If the BIOS does not have a memory remap option you are out of luck.

I have the same problem on my Dell Precision 370. I have 4GB ram but only 3GB is usable. The rest is used by Win 7 X64. I'm about to treat myself to 8GB for Christmas.
