7.25GB RAM Usable?

So I have had the MSDN AA version of Windows 7 64-bit for quite some time now and this has never shown up until after I did the latest update. Was wondering if this was out of the ordinary.

hye i've had this problem same as you ..

if you goto msconfig

-boot
-advanced options

then untick the maximum memory options

and it should be fixed! ^^

please get back to me if this has solved your problems ^^

So far it appears anyone with a Geforce 9*00 GT or whatever, it will allocate shared memory regardless of x86 or x64. Appears to try and get to 2 GB, dedicated VRAM + RAM.

Jinny,

Thanks for the help. All 8GB RAM is usable again but my processor is overclocked to 3.4GHz but it doesn't show it.

If cool and quiet is turned on then it will not show the correct OC settings, it will show 200HT x your multiplier, in my case 3600mhz, although I am actually running 3.96Ghz, If I turn cool and quiet off it shows correct data, bit of a bug!
