I have increased RAM from 2 to 4GB and installed Widows 7 64 bit. Computer properties show RAM 4GB 2.75GB usable. 1282MB reserved. How do I make more RAM usable?

It's the shared memory for the Integrated graphics card, your RAM shares memory to the graphics card, and you are using a lot. If you want more memory, enter BIOS and there should be something about shared memory, and put it at 256 MB or so.

4gb RAM only 2gb usable. Very slow new unit.How do I get the 4gb working.

Please check the system usable memory in BIOS. You can define the share pattern of graphics memory & system memory according to your usage. Also check your operating system; Only 64bit operating systems will support more than 3GB

Installed 2 g memory in pavillion but only detect 512 why?

Check the advanced boot options.
1. Go to Start, in the search bar type msconfig and press enter.
2. System Configuration window will open on the screen.
3. Click on tab named "boot".
4. Click on "Advanced Options" and uncheck the box for "Maximum Memory".
After booting to Windows, check the memory displayed in system properties. 32bit versions of Windows will not recognize more than 4GB of memory. Systems with integrated video subsystems will reserve memory for video, futher reducing the available amount shown in the OS.

How to use all my ram on Asus Eee PC Netbook

You are using all of it already. You computer has allocated part of it for your integrated graphics card. That is why it appears to have less.

Hp xw9300 has 4gb of memory installed however the system properties only shows 2 gb of memory. the bios shows 4gb of memory

This article alnog with the possibility that your graphics card is using maybe a gig of memory may explain why you don't see the 4G memory in system properties. Of course it would be useful to indicate what operating system you're using.

I add more memory to my microsoft vista but i don't see a difference in the memory

make sure that the "added memory" is detected and registered. if you got 4G before and you added a 2G module, 6G should be reflected at My Computer -> HArdware Properties
However, memory differences are only visible in running critical applications not in ordinary opening ang using of files.

I have a 64-bit computer and install Vista 64-bit. When I open System Properties, it clearly shows it is a 64-bit Operating System. However, despite having 5GB RAM, only 3.5GB is usable. This is typical of...

although 64 bit vista supports upto 128gb of memory but you should check whether all of your memory modules(ram) are working properly or not to check this go to the system bios and check it there if all the memory modules are visble
sometimes the chipsets on our motherboards share the system memory due to which ram shoewn in the system properties is less than the actual that is connected
