To the OP, reseat your memory. There's a chance one of your sticks is either not seated properly, or has died.

1)Run
2)type "msconfig"
3)Go under the "boot" tab
4)click "advanced options" button
5)UNCHECK! "Maximum memory"
6)Reboot

Spread the info seems a lot of people are having this problem, I hope this helped!
This isn't a fix at all, because that option doesn't become checked on it's own. By default, it is unchecked, and shouldn't be checked unless you are a developer who knows why you would need to limit your memory.

Confirmed!!! I checked msconfig on my laptop which has 3 of 4 GB useable... goes to video & audio subsystems... this is unchecked by default!

In going through this thread I am surprised at the number of replies with under 5 posts total and all the "expert" advice given here...

The OP never responded but I bet its a lappy or desktop with integrated graphics and or sound! These youngins just dont understant how things used to be!
