Okay here is the deal.
3 gigs of ram, 2x 1 gb and 2x 512 mb
Running 32 bit of Windows 7
Right click my computer, shows that 3 gb installed BUT 2.5 gb usable.

Why is that?
Should I be worried?
Where's that last half gb?
Is it busted?

Thank you.

I was just thinking that maybe if you had a video card built into the motherboard then it might be using some of your system memory as video memory.

It's being used by system I/O devices and possibly some other hardware. It doesn't look like it's out of control or anything. Looks pretty normal, I wouldn't worry about it.

thank you, hope you're right, it is annoying that it shows 2.5gb USABLE. they should just leave it as 3gb
