stuffs

since the beta, i have gone back to vista 64 but using a new pc with 8gb ram, so no problems there. i still haven't upgraded haha, but it would seem rational for them to do that, it would be interesting so see what would happen now on my new computer.

As one poster already stated your video card must be a built in card... part of mobo... so because of that you only see 3GB useable! If you went to 8GB total you will see 7GB useable.

What is the make and model of your system? Please fill in your system specs!

Sorry, I could have sworn when I checked specs earlier they were blank!

Perhaps the Xfi??? Some HW has allocated 1GB, because with the 64 bit you have all 4GB available to system... mine did after I upgraded!

WAIT A MINUTE YOU ARE NOT THE O.P.... he has only 4GB RAM... FTW????

hmm im guessing the only way we were to get the actual answer would to be to ask the programmers of windows,...but it could be anything, including drivers

If your mobo has an onboard vid card or sound card, is it disabled in BIOS???
