chipset if that helps out. Does anyone know
why it might not register 4 GB on a 64 bit OS?

bios limitation, nothing to do with linux
have had the same problems on many boards
try the following :
(1) update bios
(2) run live linux to check
(3) update grub (reinstall if necessary)
(4) upgrade to new kernel
if these steps do not work, well then it is a hardware issue, nothing to do with the software

Additionally, it could have something to do with how much memory was given to on-board video, if on-board video is in use.

Otherwise, I'm in agreement...F10 64bit sees all 4GB on my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop.
