It's as simple as that! Windows will recognize and somewhat use my 256MB DDR RAM but will not use more than around 85 of it! WHY NOT!? I've had this problem for three days now and I can't figure out what caused it and how to fix it. It's a custom PC so something may have accidentally been configured wrong. I can't understand though why Windows cannot allocate more than 60 to 85MB of RAM for use. Is there anyway to fix this.
