from the link I believe you are just interpreting things incorrectly. You have 2 gigs as shown in system info. Only 1 gig is available because win 7 takes the memory and puts it in cache for faster access. That is correct. In my case I have 4 gigs and win 7 takes 2 gigs for cache. You can verify this by going into task manager and looking at the performance tab. see snip

Hope this helps

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, and I was wondering why my computer tells me that 3.75 GB out of 4 GB of installed RAM is usable. I've tried unchecking "Maximum Memory" under boot using msconfig, but it didn't change anything. I know its a pretty small thing, but please help.
