Default Windows 7 memory usage

Trying to understand what this is telling me. I have an Asus M4A785TD-V EVO
mother board and a Zotac video card with 1 GB memory. I have 12 GB of memory
installed. This is how it list the memory in system information.
Why is there only 3.50 GB Total Physical Memory with 12.0 GB installed?

Installed Physical Memory 12.0 GB
Total Physical Memory 3.50 GB
Available Physical Memory 2.65 GB
Total Virtual Memory 7.00 GB
Available Virtual Memory 5.72 GB
Page File Space 3.50 GB

Are you useing winows 7 32bit or 64bit

32bit only allows about 3.5gigs of ram.

If you want to use all of your Ram get your self 64bit version

This is the same as Xp as well

32bit Xp only lets users use 3.5 gigs of ram
64bit Xp will allow you to use all of your ram.

If you have x64 Windows, check for a BIOS update for your motherboard.
