Its because you are using 32bit WINDOWS .................................
GET a 64-bit os to get benefit of 4GB ............

Even if you can share your ram to intel chipset you wont see any increase in performance !

After you did what the people told you above, go into your bios settings, should be under integrated peripherals, AGP arperture size option and you can change it.. It only works if you do not have your graphics card integrated into your motherboard though
