    System Information, I get the above
    Why is not display 4GB as total? I could understand if it was 3.5g
    because I have a 512mb 9800gtx in there, but where's the rest going
    Memory remapping in bios isn't an option cause it's not there in th
    bios
    The bios is detecting the full 4g
    And before you ask, I'm running Vista Ultimate x64.
    I've tried updating the bios, but the updater isn't working at th
    moment, I'm waiting for a reply from XFX in regards to that

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Motherboard: XFX nForce 780
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Q9300 @ 2.5 ghz (stock

  2. You might also ask in microsoft.public.windows.64bit.general since this gets
    discussed there often enough.

    Okay, I realised that it's going to shared system memory, as shown by
    this:

    New question: How do I reduce shared memory? I've googled for it but I
    can't find anything useful.

  5. That may be a BIOS setting. Check.
