Install a 64 bit OS is the only way.

Your motherboard has onboard video, (no video card installed) thats what it means by sharing, windows is sharing its memory with the onboard video chip.

Yep When I had my 4gb in Vista shared a lovely 768mb or something memory with my GPU, not that it matters really as it doesnt ever use it unless it needs too, which isn't a bad thing if you run out of memory space on the GPU.
