Did you pull the RAM cover and check to see it the DIMMs are fully seated in the slots as suggested?

His System Information says 3GB installed, 763MB available. That means the OS does see all 3GB. It also means over 2GB is being reserved for hardware or some other use. Definitely need to check all BIOS settings to see if something is configured wrong there.

Also, try removing the memory modules one at a time and booting, see what is detected and available. Could be as simple as something wrong with one of them.

His performance monitor will indeed show what windows is doing with his available memory
