With a 32 bit OS you are only going to see about 3.5 GB of RAM. This is because a 32 bit OS can only address 4 GB of RAM total. So the video card and other items us eup some of the addressing.

Just replace 2gig ram with 4 gig ram in your laptop or use another slot if there is available. Install 64bit win7 and you can use more than 4gig ram. 32bit os supports upto 3.5gig ram.
