Windows 7: Windows 7 32bit rtm don't get enough ram?

Windows 7 32bit rtm don't get enough ram?

I upgraded it from RC to RTM yesterday. Before I upgraded, it shows my computer has 2.00gb but after I get RTM, it shows that I have 1.23gb of ram. WTH is this? My system is
GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard
Intel core 2 duo E7400 2.8ghz
KINGMAX DDR2 RAM 2 sticks 1gb bus 1066
VGA 9800gt 512mb but CPUZ shows that it's up to 800MB+!

I hope I get an answer soon

Where are you seeing that you only have 1.23 Gb of Ram?
If you use Win7 Task manager under the Performance tab what does it say Total Available.

1.23GB + 800MB = 2GB more or less. Type resmon.exe into the start menu and post a shot of the memory tab. You need more memory anyway. 2GB is not enough for 7.

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
