    Hi

    I installed Windows 7 32-bit yesterday, and everything is working smoothly. But when I check out my system properties I see that Windows recognizes that I have 4 GB installed RAM, but only 2.2 of it is usable. Now I understand that 32-bit is only able to use about 3 gb, but 2.2 seems a little low.

    Does anyone know what's causing this?

    Thanks
