Difference in installed RAM, computer properties

I just upgraded the memory on my wife's Dell Inspiron 530 from 1GB to 4GB. Now the computer properties says it has 3.24GB. Is that normal, or should it say 4GB?

Thanks,
AndyDan

    windows 32 bit has a 4 gig limit and with parts on the bios shadowing some of the ram windows wont sown 4g of ram.
    it be 3.2 or 3.4g of ram. as long as you dont get any lock up or bsod your fine.
