Make sure in system configuration, you have Maximum Memory set to zero (0). Save & reboot system, then re-check.

I am a little confused. You are asking about 32bit system while your system spec says you have x64. What you describe is about right for a 32 bit system, which has a maximum usable space of about 3.25-3.5 GB. With a 64 bit OS you should be able to see all 8GB. Which is it?

RAM 6.0 GB (1.95 GB Usable) WTF?!
What's this all about? Last time I checked system properties it said 5.5 GB usable. Now, today I noticed that my sidebar said that my memory is 40% in use and there's only 1.5 GB available. What's going on here? I was thinking it could be my video card taking the memory, but I didn't change any...
