4GB RAM but only 2038mb showing - Vista 32 bit.
4GB RAM but only 2038mb showing - Vista 32 bit.

Hi, I have just purchased a Sony VAIO NR11 ZS. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo
CPU - T7250, a 200GB Hard drive and 4096mb RAM. It's also running on VISTA
Home Premium - 32bit.

When i go in to the speed/performance screen it show that I have 2038mb
RAM?? I thought it was meant to be 4096mb??

So went to the system info screen in the start menu, it shows the following:-

Total Physical Memory:- 2037.81mb

Available Physical Memory:- 1.11GB
**You've probably guessed that I confused by now**
Total Virtual Memory:- 4.19GB

Available Virtual Memory:- 3.33GB

Page File Space:- 2.28GB

I would be so grateful if someone can explain this infomation to me. Do I
have 4GB of RAM??

I understand that I should be able to see 3GB with 32bit Vista, noy just
under 2GB

Any help VERY much appreciated,

Thanks,

Darren

I have an HP dekstop with 4Gb RAM running Vista Business. Task Manager shows
total physical memory as 3325Mb.

When you go into the BIOS at boot, how much RAM does it show there?
