Ok - first things first - check the BIOS and make sure the memory remap feature is not enabled.

The memory remap moves the hardware addressing to above 4GB for a 64 bit OS. If memory remap is enabled with a 32 bit OS, it may limit memory to 2GB, regardless of how much is installed.


To find out how to enter the BIOS on your machine - see here:

Let me know!

Oh - and by the way, my current charge out rate is one applaud for ever issue solved.
