Can you give your system specs, some Mobo doesn't support higher RAM.

That properties page shows 4gb installed with 3gb usable which is probably to do with memory shared with your gfx device so its not available for the OS to use

It is a total of 4GB of RAM in two 2GB modules. That is what (2 x 2GB) means.

xms 3 is just the model of the ram and I suspect the stick is one half of a set

When purchased new it would have been a twin pack of ram sticks ie 2x2gb = 4gb, but now you have one half of that
