it means you have an onboard video card, that uses 1024 MB from your ram, so you only have 1024 free from 2048.

That`s strange because I don`t use onboard video card,I use nvidia geforce 8400 gs .. But.. Is there any way I can switch it back to 2048 ?

Two things to check...

Boot into system bios and check the settings for the on-board graphics adaptor - as you are not using this it should be switched to off - this is normally automatic when the system discovers the extra graphic card , the 8400, though some motherboards must be set manually

Check in the nVidia control panel to check if the 8400 is set to use any system memory. This should be reduced to the lowest level that still provides the level of graphics you need.

On a 32 bit system the memory limitations can sometimes cause issues but this is for systems of 3+ GB installed RAM

This thread inspired me to pull a similar question off the back shelf, and check it out, but I haven't found the answer. Like the with you, System Properties shows only 3GBs of memory, out of 4GBs installed.

I ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, but it found no problems. I noticed that the initial BIOS screen showed dual channel, but only 3072MB okay, with 4096MB installed. This suggests that there is a memory problem, before the OS starts, but I also ran CPU-Z, and the current version shows 4096MB of memory. However, before getting the latest version of the program, I tried to run an older one, but Windows partially blocked it because it said that the driver wasn't signed. On this older version, it only showed 3072MB of memory, just like the BIOS screen.

Before installing the Windows 7 RTM, this problem didn't exist, but I don't think that would have any effect of the BIOS readings. I'm going to run another test with Memtest86, but at this point, I'm not sure what is happening.

Hmm, that shows 1025MB as hardware reserved. Since my MB doesn't have an onboard video card, what would be reserving that memory? Like the OP, I don't find any settings in the Nvidia Control Panel that would effect this, and I hadn't had this issue with my current video card before.
