Well about 1 GB is being reserved for Hardware, so you will need to look in the BIOS for a memory remap option or close to that. If you do not have that option...not much that can be done aside from getting a new motherboard and chipset or BIOS update.

Here's mine.. my only concern is I'm almost positive that this was not happening on Build 7000, or 7201. So makes me think it's something that was added to the final build. I didn't need a bios update, or New motherboard before.. that doesn't make sense. I could see BIOS update, but needing a new motherboard when mines less than 2 years old and of a pretty large brand. seems odd. We'd see tons of people asking about this if it was motherboard based.

I'll check in the bios.

and Thanks Digerati. I wasn't trying to be rude.

The Resource Monitor shows all 4096 Installed.. hm. and CPU-Z also reported everything normal.

But as you can see from the physical layout of your memory, 1282 MB is being reserved for hardware. I bet you it is your graphic's card and its drivers that is why it probably wasn't in the previous builds. I've been seeing the same thing over and over again with Nvidia.

It might be listed in DirectX Diagnostics, WIN + R > "dxdiag" > Display.

huh.. DX Diagnostics?

So how do I change, or fix this.. it could be my GPU. I looked at that first as they both have 896mb of ram. totaling that up and comparing the numbers are still off, unless it's not reserving all the memory, and in that case would be dumb not to use it all.

I think the setting number of processors and modifing the amount of memory used at boot in msconfig causes this. If you've set the number of processors in boot to 4, and changed the maximum memory, try disabling both and see if it fixes it.

yes I have messed with that. I'll try setting back to default. I'll set ram to default, but why not set to use all processors. or does it not really speed it up any.

Look in the bios for some kind of memory remapping setting.

Edit - Ugh...sorry about that...just noticed that Logic said this already.

It's actually a diagnostic tool. Windows uses all available cores by default anyway, so there is no performance increase.
