It shows up correctly in windows vista.

Could it have anything to do with virtual box? I assigned 1GB RAM for that
and that's about the same as the amount missing. It might, also, just be a
coincidence as I had recently added 2GBs and had not checked before
installing virtualbox. I have uninstalled it as of now and also removed its
kernel modules.

I will check my BIOS settings for apertures and memory holes.
