I have a Dell Studio XPS 435mt, it originally came with 4gb of ram. I just added 4 more gb of ram (2 x2gb sticks). However the system is only showing that I have 6gb of ram... (well, 5.9 to be exact) - however when I check the bios, it shows the full 8gb. I know some of the ram is reserved by the system, but 2gb's worth seems a bit excessive?
I don't have any kind of mapping option in my bios, and I checked the msconfig to verify that the max ram option is unchecked.
