    Vista has a 4GB limitation for RAM. The operating system reserves some of
    this RAM, allowing a maximum of 3.3GB to be usable by the rest of the
    system. Out of this 3.3GB, it may also subtract out memory that is needed
    for soundcards and other devices in the system. That's my understanding at
    least. Search for "4GB RAM Vista" on Google. This is a good article -

    What is the meaning or it is normal if the Vista PC has 4G of Ram and Vista
    only recognizes 2..8.
