The missing 65MB is probably being used by the onboard graphics.

Some systems use some of the main RAM as video RAM.

If you have built in graphics (high probability) some may be used for the graphics process. Not at all unusual.

As the others have said this is very common and that is probably where the memory has gone.

I concur this is the most likely explanation my laptop has 512 of ram but only shows up as 448 the other 64meg is used for my graphics
