Re: I have 4GB of installed physical memory but only 1.74 in total physical memory

Cool, if you can refer me to that dell document that states is engineering problem, I can see what i can do...the thing to note is the memory allocation is dyanmic, plus I have couple of envy with this, and have not had any performance issue on them...

Cool, Dell is like HP, they do not release engineering documents.

I don't understand how it can be a windows 7 video card management problem if not all other windows 7 computers with the same graphics card as my computer have the same issues as mine.

Exactly, it is an engineering issue HP does not want to deal with at this point, nothing to do with the OS.

Well after 6 hours of failed over the phone trouble shooting HP is going to take it in under warranty. Hopefully they can fix this.

For those who may be suffering from a similar problem, I thought I should let you know that HP fixed my problem. I sent in my computer and they fixed it. Here is what my resource monitor now says
