Second 2Gb are on a single memory or 2x1Gb? Check for update motherboard BIOS. 32Bit Operating systems only manage 3,6Gb RAM.

What OS are you using? you can see how much memory is available by using the task manager,  performance tab, and look at the physical memory... If you are using a 32 bit version of windows, you will only see 3.60 or 3.50

If u r using Vista/win 7 32 bit. The operating system using the remaining ram as shared graphics memory.

to check this go to
right click my computer--->Properties---> Installed Ram will show usable RAM.

Also in same window click to windows experience Index------>View and print u will see ur system info that shows the amount of shared RAM
