Just for a new laptop PC. It indictaes "6GB RAM installed (1.45GB usable)" - how can it be only using 1.45GB? Is there something I can do to change this?

Its a 64 bit version of Windows.

Thanks for any advice.

Thanks for the tip. The "Maximum Memory" box there is unticked.

Thanks for the suggestion - its a new laptop PC though, so the BIOS should be exactly as it was - I did the BIOS reset to default, and no change.
 
from other forums, other people have suggested a bios update helped them but its most likely a memory option in the bios but try the update and look for any memory related options on the lines off address space remapping etc and enabling it.
