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?
