Please see the answer here: http://bitsum.com/docs/pl/faq.htm#lowram .

Process Lasso shows the total amount of usable RAM available to the OS. If this is less than you have installed, it may be because some is dedicated to your on-chip graphics adapter and/or your system can not address all avaialble RAM (e.g. a 32-bit Windows edition not having enough address space). You can verify this in the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc). In the 'Performance' tab, check to see the Total amount of physical memory it says you have. That should match what Process Lasso shows. We figured that you know what you have installed, and it would be better to tell you how much is actually available for use by Windows.
