Welcome to TSG. I've deleted your other post that was identical to this one and attached to another user's thread.

Do you have the 32 bit version of Vista? If so then you've just realized the limitation of a 32bit operating system. It can support 4 GB of memory but that also includes addressing for other memory and devices; including your video card memory and BIOS reservations. 3 GB is the real limit and thats what you are seeing.
