Your OS supports more than 4GB RAM. You will just have to enable PAE in your boot config. See the Links below for details:

Use msconfig to enable that setting (not bcdedit as the Link above suggests, as that is only available on newer OS's).

Can you tell us why you accepted that particular comment as the answer? For one thing it is nothing but a blind link without additional information from the poster, and that is regarded as not acceptable on this site (only when the asker specifically asks for links, like "Where can I download the drivers for this PC").

Apart from that both liorkr and I posted earlier with more details than your accepted answer, and again on this site you should normally accept the first correct comments, and not the last.
