  1. Make sure you are running a 64bit version of windows. It sounds like you have 32bit windows and have hit the 32bit address limit.

    You need to change to 64bit. 32bit Windows cannot access that extra ram.
  4. In most cases you need 64bit windows to use anything above 4GB of addressed memory (this includes your video cards's ram, and all other memory addresses for your system's devices like sound card, LAN ETC. hence why you can only use 3.15GB of RAM on your current system with 32bit windows. There may be a way around it with PAE (physical address extensions) but it can be quite a pain in the backside to configure and even then most programs cannot use it properly. Moral of the story is to upgrade to 64bit windows and you will be golden......
