I'm running a dual quad core server with 16 gigs of memory.  When looking at system properties (right click "computer" > properties) the memory is reported correctly.  When looking at Task Manager, it only reports 8 gigs.

Ideas?

Run a memory test to make sure our memory isnt bad.  How many sticks do you have to equal the 16?

Turns out that redundant RAM was enabled in the BIOS on the server.  Once I disabled it, the correct memory was reported and I was able to utilize the full 16 GB.
