This is a different PC than the previous post (FYI)...

I had vista x64 on this PC w/ 4 gig RAM and it only saw 3.25 gig and now I installed WS2008 (with plans of using is as a desktop) mainly for virtual Server 2005 and it only sees 3.25 gig. BIOS sees 4096 gig.

With Virtual Server, all the RAM available is usually needed and another 768 meg would be helpful.

Any ideas how to recover to missing RAM in windows?

As always TIA,

I have seen mention of a BIOS setting that causes similar issues. You may want to look for a memory mapping-related setting.
