It showed I had 32.0 installed anywhere that registered the ram sticks. I tweaked an option in the registry and tinkered around the BIOS. Somehow (Hardware reserved 8.0gb) is now gone.

She's fixed. I don't know how I did it or if 32 restarts did the trick. Within the bios I was looking for anything relating to memory. I clicked on a few things but did not set anything. Just making sure everything was on AUTO.

I think the problem was actually in the BIOS somewhere and dumb luck along with all your suggestions fixed it. Thanks for your help guys. This is why I love this forum!!
