Can you boot into Mac O/S? If so open up System Profiler, click on the memory option and see what the Mac is seeing.

I'm very excited that to say that booting Windows fixed itself. My machine: MBP 2010. OSX Fuse installed. Recent update on one OSX partition to Mavericks. My machine automatically ran its CHKDSK function and restored its own ability to boot. It found orphaned files and repaired the links.
