windows 7 pro only using 16gb ram

i've 32 gb ram in my pc and windows 7 pro is only using 16. i assumed it could use 192gb

i have changed the sims around so i know they all work and my mob can handle up to 32gb

"4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of system memory * Due to Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than 4 GB."

any ideas why all 32 is not showing up?

do i need to tweek bio or something?

Yes I can use my pc a it's own streaming server LIKE onlive. I don't use onlive, ewww sub 720p resolution right now. My home version using esxi pumps out 560ti max setting with no lag over my network.

Why would the OS need so much RAM to itself? Leave some for the applications!

It doesn't, is a super thin client. I need so much so when I boot Vms they can have a dedicated amount of memory. If I'm on the pc it will use all of it. If I spin up other Vms locally or remotely I give them either 4 or 8gb ram depending on what I'm doing with it in terms of apps.
