Your BIOS may be set to share Onboard RAM with Video RAM.

It depends on which windows you are using, the type of videocard you have installed etc. In Windows XP, it's fairly common that you can only use 3GB because 1GB is reserved for Windows XP. And if you're still running XP, it's about time that you upgrade your system to Windows 7 or 8, preferably to a 64-bit version if your CPU supports it. Windows XP will be out of support in a few months and it's never been good dealing with large amounts of memory. It was designed for computer hardware 1 decade ago!!

It's 32bit, so can only use about half of your RAM. 64bit allows you to use it to its extent.

Your operating system reserves a reasonable amount of memory, and if you have a processor that has built in graphics then it also reserves memory for itself.
