OS Shows Installed RAM 32 GB but only 24 GB Usable
Recently I have Installed 32 GB of RAM in my AsRock 990FX Extreme4 motherboard, But I cannot access the full amount of RAM. My OS (Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit) shows :
Installed memory(RAM): 32.0 GB (24.0 GB usable).
My BIOS version is 1.80 and I can view four 8 GB RAM in my BIOS screen. I want to use the full amount of RAM in my system. Do I have to update the BIOS to 2.00 version or is it a OS glitch. Please suggest me something.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. As your suggestion I have tried the memtest86+ which also showed me that system have 24 GB of RAM. Then I just switched off the system and swapped the RAM modules in the DIMM slot after cleaning them. That did the trick. Now the OS is recognizing full 32 GB of RAM. Thanks a lot.
