Hi Experts

I bought a new machine HP Z620 Workstation with 48GB RAM but when installed Windows 7 Pro I see that only 4GB of RAM is used, how to make Windows 7 Pro use all 48GB RAM.

You must have installed 32-Bit.  You need 64-bit to get the benefit of 48GB.
right mouse on my computer and look at properties, that should tell you whether 32 or 64-bit.

On 32-bit you should see only 3,2 GB in windows properties.
Definitely check if you have 32-bit or 64-bit but could be also you need to enable some option in BIOS
