I am running windows 7 64 bit with an EVGA 055 motherboard and an i5 Intel processor;
I have 2 4gig DDR3 ram kits installed, and windows only sees 4 gigs. Resource manager is informing me that i have a total of 4087mb, and 4096mb installed.
A while back, after taking out the ram and putting it back in, i was able to get windows 7 to see all 8 gigs of ram (which system spec tools do see, as does the BIOS), but 4 gigs was hardware reserved. Then I restarted and that went away. Now i am only seeing 4 total.
does anybody know where the problem could lie? i have been informed before that it could be an issue of a bug in windows 7.
