Okay I have Windows 7 ultimate x86 on my Frankenstein.  I like to think I know quite a bit about computers.  I usually fix all of the issues with my computers and the people I know.  However this one has got me flabbergasted.  When I first discovered this issue I tried to boot up Windows 7.  I got this error ram disk can't be created.  I don't even understand that, I never tried to create a ram disk.  I don't even have a program to create a ram disk.  I installed Windows xp just so I could log in and see if I could figure something out.  I looked at system information and it appeared only 64MB of my 4GB of RAM installed where being detected.  I thought okay must be that my RAM has gone bad, no problem I'll just order some more online.  I finally received the RAM and installed it.  I was supremely confident that was the issue.  However I tried to boot Windows 7 again and I get the same problem!!  I then log in to Windows xp and still shows only 64MB of RAM are being detected.  I've tried searching online to see if someone else has had the same issues and I've had no luck what so ever.  I did a memory check and everything checked out just find.  The RAM isn't the issue so what is wrong???  I have no idea.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Where are you seeing this amount of RAM?  I'm wondering if you are looking at the usable RAM apposed to the installed amount.

 

To view the installed amount of RAM click on the Start orb, right click on Computer and select Properties.

 

 

Please open Disk Management and create a screenshot of what is shown there.

 

How to make a screenshot and post it in your topic

1. Download and run A Thousand Words .

2. Follow the wizard to capture a screenshot.

3. Use the built-in editor to resize, edit, or re-capture your screen shot.

4. Your screen shot will be saved to your desktop when you finish the wizard.

You can post the screenshot in your next post as an attachment.

Just below the area where you write text in a post there is the Post button, to the right of this is More Reply Options.

When you click on More Relpy Options you will see Attach Files and Browse, click on Browse, this will open Pictures on your computer, click on the image you want to post, then click on Attach This File, then Add Reply.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You didn't follow the instructions for the Speccy.  The instruction will walk you through the process of creating the hyper link you will eventually post in your topic.  This link looks similar to the one below.  Click on the link below to see what the output should look like.
