Only seeing 2GB RAM when I have 3GB

Hi all,

I've just installed some new RAM, 1GBx3 sticks. In Windows 7 32 bit it is only showing 2GB. Do you think it is a problem with the RAM or the OS?

Its a Hardware problem not Software(OS).

Oh OK. I just did a check with CPUZ and thats showing 3GB.

Another question, if I installed Windows 7 64-bit, can I install a 32-bit virtual machine such as XP Mode?
