Hardware-reserved memory mystery! (Please help!)

Hi. I recently took my PC out of summer-storage, and noticed that it was running quite slowly. After a few days, I discovered the problem:


Half of the memory is allocated to 'hardware reserve'!

I already tried a couple suggestions I found online: switching the positions of the memory sticks; setting the pagefile to clear at shutdown; increasing pagefile size. No effect. Maybe it has something to do with a Windows update? Any help would be appreciated.
