RAM Question!

I have 8GB DDR3 1333 MHz ram installed in my laptop and currently I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit and today when I went to my cousin's house he had built a new desktop PC and it contained 8 GB ram, he has Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit but his uses the full 8.00 GB mine only uses 7.74 GB some thing like that.any way can i make it use full 8GB like his or is it just like that for some certain reasons?

The reason being is probably because your system is using 256 Mb of that 8 gigs for the video card. . .
