    I just built my first pc running vista home premium x64 sp1. I have 8
    gigs of ram installed.Bios sees all 8 gigs.When i display system summary
    in vistas system imfromation it states i have 8 gigs installed
    memory,3.75 gigs total physical memory,and 6.57 available physical
    memory.Can someone please explain to me what this means.Should i have
    more than 3.75 gigs of total physical memory? Do i need to
    reinstall?Thank You.

    Did you enable the memory remap feature in BIOS? This will enable
    Vista 64 to access all your 8 GB, although only software written to
    access more than 2 GB will be able to use it.
