The cause is most probably the graphic card which is allocated 1GB as hardware reserved memory, a system BIOS update might help but there is nothing you can do about that unusable 1GB

Nope, the snips indicate 4GB of physical RAM, 3GB of useable RAM and 1GB of hardware memory

now i have 2x2gb of same memory, but my windows 7 x64 says it is only 3,0 of 4Gb used.
I have indicated 128mb card
And it isn't all going to the onboard video, the rest of the 1 GB is taken by everything else that requires address space. fpopic forgot to update his specs.
