    I don't understand, i believe that installing the 64 bits version i could use more ram memory. where is the problem?Can i do something?

    translating the image: installed memory (RAM): 4,00 GB (2,75 GB usable)

    Check your bios, is some being shared with the graphics perhaps?

    I assume that your video is on the MOBO. You might try using a PCI or PCIe video card and see if you can reclaim some ram.

    Thats correct if true as I have an internal graphics card with shared memory. And more or less thats about what you will get. Also do you have programs that are running after boot up? As I do, the memory will further decrease. Some of the Internet Security type programs take up tp say plus or minus 200 megs.
