4GB of RAM Only Showing As 3GB?

I recently installed 2 sticks of 2GB RAM, totaling 4GB in my laptop, however it only shows as 3GB in the windows system information box that you get when you open the system properties in my computer. When i check the bios at startup, it showed that I have 4 thousand and something MB of RAM, which would be 4GB, so i'm wondering why this is.
