So basically my PC is only recognizing 3.25gb of my Ram. I have researched this various ammounts of times. Done BIOS updates (Currently on Version 1.09)
I have tried a few methods like the MSConfig>Memory>AdvancedSettings.
Even CPU-Z recognizes all 4gb. Same in my BIOS and Same in My Computer except only 3.25 is usable.

My Computer (You have all seen this before. But just to provide more information)
I know my RAM is not buggered either. As I have tried it in a xw4300 WorkStation
Im not sure if this is even in the right section. Sorry if its not I did look around for the most appropriate section
No I forgot to add I formatted my HardDrive Installed XP so i could do a MicroCode update on my Processor. And then I updated my BIOS from XP. This stil did not show all my RAM. I then Installed WIN 7 PRO 64bit. And Used Disk Ceanup to remove the Old Windows OS. I have 2 sticks of 2gb. And 1 stick Shows the full 2gb. And I tried the other and it still shows the 2gb
It Says its HardWare Reserved
Thank you for sharing this information.
Checking these reports, I see the computer is recognizing 4GB installed on the motherboard but the availability may be limited by the Operating System or a configuration in your system.
At this point, the best step is to contact HP and report this issue to them. Doing a BIOS update may do the trick as well.
