You could go into BIOS and see the total amount of memory.

Wow, that's weird.  Can you install CPU Z?  If not, then maybe go into your computer's BIOS and it will state it there.

Not sure why Windows won't show it.

Click Start, type services.msc.  Look for a service called Windows Management Instrumentation.  Make sure it is started and set to automatically start.

By using SIW(system information for windows) application you can see how much physical memory you have installed and you can also what type of processor you have.
