comment Why are graphics cards upside-down?
I'm not convinced - the coldest air is sucked in the front and then upwards to the exhaust fan next to the CPU. So the bottom of the case at the back doesn't really get good airflow. Especially when there a large PCB trapping it

comment Why is my Asus P5PL2-E using 640MB of RAM (out of 4GB)?
no, 32-bit OS can see 4 Gb. Windows takes 1 or 2Gb for itself. What the 'hole' is, is a block of reserved space that old specifications put there ('cos 4Gb was more than anyone could imagine once upon a time)

next step is to take ownership (admins may not have security access, but they can always take ownership and then alter it), or it is in-use by a running application.
