Default RAM missing

I don't know how but when I overclocked my processor my RAM went from 1Gb to 959Mb, and I was just wondering if I could possibly get it back. I have 2 512Mb sticks of RAM, if that even helps any.

Thanks

hmmm the mobo you list has integrated graphics right? is it possible you accidentally shared ~64mb with the graphics? its either that or your overclock is seriously unstable and your pc is reporting your RAM incorrectly

i agree, disable you shared video memory, then check. Do you have a video card?

I don't know how to disable my shared video memory, and yes I do have a video card.
