Dell Latitude D630 usable ram? After upgrade?

This refurb system I really like.  But I upgraded the ram to 4 gb and the system recognizes 4 gb.  But, it says only 1 gb is "available."  Why?  Is there a way to improve the amount of ram available?

I love the keyboard on this little system, my granddaughter is using for homeschooling. 

Thanks.

RE: Dell Latitude D630 usable ram? After upgrade?

The rest is being used by Windows or hardware inside the system - that's normal;  it means you have 25% of your memory available.

If the system has an integrated Intel GPU (likely, as most of the discrete nVidia ones are long dead due to a design fault by now), it's also using system memory for video purposes.
