memory issue

By mjkqb ·
Have two 2k3 boxes with 4gb of ram. Task manager always shows about 3.6gb of physical memory.

SQL is on both boxes.

Any idea why task manager shows only 3.6gb of physical memory?

is it showing a total of 3.6 or available [ free ]of 3.6?

is the bios recognising the full 4 gigs itself, or is it showing the same amount?

Check your bios for further infomation that your machine might have onboard chipset especially onboard graphic chipset might shared your Ram memory away.

do you have hot plug PCI slots on the boxes? this can consume a good amount of ram per slot. in addition your video card may be using some of your physical addressing space.
