Find and enable memory remapping (It may have a different description) in your BIOS.

If your system was supplied with 32-bit Windows and was from a major system builder the setting may not be available.

 

Did this solve your problem?

Didn't found this setting ... system has windows 7 professional x64, it had x64 before with the older video card. Can you tell me where exactly this option should be?

Many Thanks!

Change Windows 7 Maximum Memory in MSCONFIG

(For 64-bit users)

Windows 7 users with 64-bit hardware can also access MSCONFIG to increase their maximum memory allocation. This is very easy to do.

Go to Start and enter MSCONFIG in the Search box. You should see msconfig.exe listed – click this to open the utility.

On the Boot tab, go to Advanced to access the BOOT Advanced Options. Under the Maximum Memory setting, allocate the maximum amount of RAM available and click Apply. You will then need to reboot your PC to continue, and the full allocation of RAM should be available to the operating system when you reboot!

The setting is in the motherboard BIOS, not in Windows.
Where it is and what is labelled as depend on the system and its manufacturer.
