    Win 8 doesn't see all my RAM

    I have 4 GB of RAM installed. BIOS sees all of it, Win7 sees it all, Win8 only sees 2 GB. Does anybody else have this problem of Win8 not seeing all of the installed RAM?

    That is very uncommon based on the BIOS & Win7 seeing all the RAM.

    Have you run any memory tests?
    Have you tried removing and reinstall the memory?
    Have you tried swapping the slots?

    Joe, Thanks for replying to my post.
    To answer your three questions: YES, YES, YES.
    A fourth question: Have you tried different memory? YES.
