Physical Memory available in Task Manager not matching RAM installed

Hello,

I have a new server in which I installed 14 GB of RAM.  I can see that the system is recognizing the RAM by looking in the System properties under Control Panel.

However, while monitoring system performance, I've noticed that under Physical Memory, only 3.3 GB are being utilized.  What did I do wrong?  Or maybe I am misunderstanding something.

The server is running on Windows Server Enterprise 2008.

Thank you,
Christine

To enable PAE you need to add /PAE on the appropriate entry in boot.ini.

Thank so much.  All I had to do was type in "BCDEdit /set pae forceenable" in the cmd prompt and reboot and voila!

Have a wonderful day!
