I guess you're running a 32 bit operating system?

Unless you are running a 64-bit operating system (or 32-bit Windows Enterprise), it will show some amount of RAM less than 4GB.  This is a limit of 32-bit ... 32-bits ~ 4 billion memory addresses (4GB).

All 32-bit operating systems do, be it Linux, Windows, or whoever.  The server will support up to 16GB, but to use it all requires an OS that can see and use more than 4GB.

There are some 32-bit versions of Windows that can see more than 4GB, but because of the 32-bit limit, it does change the way it can use it.
