RAM Problem

Hey everyone, this is my first time posting on the Windows 7 Forums, and i bought my pc yesterday. I booted it up and brought up the system properties.

I have 2GB of RAM installed, but it says only 1.75GB of it is usable, does anyone know what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance.

Sure do. You video card is using 256mb for shared video ram. It is normal and happens all the time with built in video chipsets.
