hi
take off your email
sounds like you are running a 32 bit os
you will need a 64 bit os to utilize more than 3.75gb ram

You are running a 32 bit windows I assume? It can't use 4gb.
Also, you shouldn't put your email address in a post like this, you will get spam.

To use more RAM than 3.25GB, u really need x64bit windows.

And integrated graphics will allocate your RAM too.
