Re: g40-45 ram half size

Windows will come in two "flavors" - 32 bir and 64 bit. The 32 bit version will not count the entire 4gb, nor will it recognize more than 4gb no matter what is installed. Usually the 32 bit versions will only show around 3.5gb available to use.

I would suggest moving to a 64bit, as it will count a lot of memory, more than what we can now use anyways.
