Hello Paras,


I have a 32bit installation running 2.6.27-9-server with 4Gb of RAM.
My kernel says that is sees 3918Mb.

I also have another computer running on 8Gb of RAM with a 64bit
kernel, and all 8Gb are available.

If I were you the first thing I would check (other than the kernel
version as Chris suggested) would be if your video card is  not taking
the missing RAM. (Check your BIOS settings for you GPU memory).

Kind regards,
