comment What hardware device used to eat up 1.4GB of my 4GB RAM, and now suddenly after no hardware changes eats up 2.2GB?
Nope, except disabling memory protection (DEP) there are no such options. And especially I'm 100% certain I did not change any BIOS options except boot priority between 1.4GB and 2.2GB eaten.

Checked all menus of my BIOS/UEFI setup (and even found a memory test tool that tested my 4GB and found no errors), but did not find any "Memory" or "RAM" settings.

Does anyone know a tool/game that works on Intel HD Graphics that can use up more than a few MB of graphics memory, so that I can test it and check if the amount of memory reserved for hardware increases (as I would expect if the amount of memory changes dynamically)?

probably. but since it is nowhere possible to change the "maximum" memory (and Intel everywhere advertises that the amount of memory used can change dynamically), and it also does not appear as used in the resource manager, it would surprise me...

The notebook came with this RAM configuration (1 bank of 4GB used), and it also came with Windows 7. I did reinstall the Windows 7 half a year ago (and installed all drivers using Lenovo Update Wizard) , but never had a look at resource monitor since I just did not need the extra RAM at all, so I cannot tell if it was already there when I got it.

comment Instead /bin/bash as a shell, /bin/passwd in /etc/passwd file
Wild guess: You run SSH or some other service that can do more than opening interactive sessions (like SCP or port forwarding). Allowing just /bin/passwd will allow the user to change his password, but (hopefully) nothing else interactively (depending on the capabilities of SSH or whatever). configuring /bin/r(ba)sh would be a bit more work.

comment Difference between Product Key and Serial Number
Lots of technical details: forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/… Long story short: Win7 product keys contain no N, Win8 ones do, they use different algorithms to convert to binary. Some programs use the wrong algorithm when decoding binary product ID to product key, therefore showing a wrong key.
