on a 32 bit operating system you can only address 3.2-3.5GB of ram. That is all the OS can "see"...the exact amount depends on what system devices you have. There are a good many articles you can read on the technical reasons (google 32bit OS ram limitations) but you will have to switch to a 64 bit OS to see more ram.
