I assume you have two 1GB and two 0.5GB RAM? Maybe one broken? Did you run memtest or something? Ho much RAM does it show in BIOS? If BIOS only shows 2.5 GB, then RAM is kaputt. but it also could be hlaf-kaputt and BIOS recognizes it, but W7 is more critical about it.

if your graphics are integrated windows doesnt count the memory needed by the graphics card as usable RAM.

Less than 4.0 GB RAM usable?
It's funny, because ALL of my RAM was usable some time ago. (I have no idea how long ago this was, but it was on the same OS) I am using Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. I know about the whole 32-bit issue where some say you can't use much more than 3GB. Well, I WAS. I wouldn't be writing this...
