Anyone know why this is? I am running Windows XP, I heard this has something to do with it but I was not aware 2.2gig RAM was the cap. In fact, i did a google search and found nobody at all with a similar problem. I have 2 sticks of 512 Kingston RAM and 2 sticks of 1GB Kingston RAM, both sets are the same model with different amounts of it - and yes, I tried reinstalling the RAM, and they are in the proper color-coded areas.

Ok, it says:

Type: DDR2
Memory: 3072
Channels #: Dual

So, this program detects the 3GB ram, but Windows doesn't.

some cards although they have their own ram can also draw on the system ram
the amount it can draw is set in the bios
my 7600gs has 256mb and can draw a further 256mb from the system giving it 512mb

The program you reccomended said 3024 ram.

The DxDiag says, "2302 RAM" meaning it only recognizes 2.3gig.
