What does /proc/meminfo tell:

     $ cat  /proc/meminfo

And what does /var/log/dmesg tell us.

Since 4G is a magic overflow corner case number there is a potential
for any number of arithmetic errors if all the values are not sized
for 64 bits.

The error could be in top, since top looks at /proc/meminfo we should
be able to look at the raw data that top looks at and see if anything is lost
in translation.

Also look at /var/log/dmesg for clues.
