My PC RAM is not fully usable

Hi guys.

I have 2.00 GB of RAM on my PC.
But in brackets I can see (1.75 GB usable).

Why is that?

Your 0.25GB of RAM is hardware reserved, most probably shared by your graphic card
You can't do anything about that

That's such a small amount to be worried about, Win 7 is the best allaocator of ram it will use it as needed you don't have to worry about it.
