What do you mean by patched to 64 bit?

It is a patch to remove the 4 GB physical ram limitation in the kernel.

Activate memory hole remapping in BIOS and you will get your "harware reserved" memory back.

Welcome to the forum.

Is this a 32 or 64 bit OS? What you are seeing is to be expected in a 32 bit OS if 16 GB RAM is installed. A 32 bit OS can address a maximum of 4 GB RAM of which about 3-3.5 GB will be accessible.

32 bit, I understand the amount of usable memory with a 32 bit system. But why so much allocated to hardware reserve.

With a 32 bit OS all memory above the 4 GB limit will be assigned to hardware reserved to prevent it being used. There is no one other category available for inaccessible memory.

You need to install 64 bit and get a newer video card, at least something in the 900 series.
