    This is normal for a 32 bit Operating System. It can only Address 4Gb ram and a portion of that is used for system overhead, so you willonly see between 3.25 and 3.5 gb Ram. However you should see 4Gb during POST.

    Yes, if you want to use more than 4Gb of RAM you will have to upgrade to a 64bit OS, however, based on the System Specs in your profile, you probably wont benefit a great deal from more than 4Gigs anyway, the majority of the time that is plenty.
