I think you are right. A snip of the Resource Monitor colored bar would help a lot. That would also show the "Hardware Reserved".

His does say 4096 installed, 4095 total. so OS is seeing the whole four. I am not married to the estimate I used but if he isnt experiencing any problems why worry?

Press Start - Type "memory" no quotes
select "Windows Memory Diagnostic"
tell it to test now - your PC will restart & a memory test will happen.

But after i start using it its sits @ 1.2gb-1.4gb Steam,Xfire,Raptr Everest Ultimate,VMware Loaded MAC OS X Leapord and Windows 98SE For older apps and DOS games and i allways have MVware going on another screen so total after all is loaded its 2-4GB

My apologies were directed to zigzag3143 for the items in bold. The actual calculations are still up for debate.

I will cease to contribute further to this thread.
