Thanks for everyones help!!!!!!
I appreicaite it so much for the replys.

I have finally fixed the problem :p

One of the new ram i had was damage somehow and bios could not read the ram which didn't show up.
Removing this solved the problem of the unusable memory :)

Now i have 4GB installed and 4GB usable :D

>;) got to contact scan for a replacement now.

How many memory slots, you may have to run 8 gigs instead of six, your board may require if you have 4 memory slots to have them all filled or just two of them filled as you have now. You may not be able to just use 3 slots. Is the memory the same type? mixing and matching memory does not work.

Cool, glad it's resolved! Certainly, as was mentioned a while back, did seem to point @ bad RAM somewhere.

Cheers,

Hi Rakesh,

I'm not sure what your query is or what help it is you seek. If, it is the fact that you have 6GB RAM in your machine & yet, it is seeing 3.25 as useable... this is right & normal. It simply means you have a 32-bit machine & or OS. x86 stops @ 3.25, no matter how much RAM is actually in the machine. x64 will see & use more.

Cheers,
Drew
