Hello!  Just built a new PC.  Here are the specs:

ECS A55F-M2 AMD Hudson FM1
AMD A4-Series AD3300OJGXBOX Dual-Core A4-3300 APU
Patriot PSD32G13332 PC10600 2GB DDR3 (x2=4GB)
Windows 7 Pro - 64bit

I just realized that over 2GB of ram was showing up as "hardware reserved" in resource monitor.  Is there any way to free up this reserved ram?  The BIOS on this board seems quite crappy--there's no ram configuration available, only a setting for the video, which is set at 32mb.  If there's something I can do about this, I would be grateful for any help!
