Did you check for bios updates for your system? It looks to me the bios
still maps the PCI memory hole into the 3.5-4GiB segment, this would
explain your memory size (or do you have 3.5GB installed, not 4GiB?). 

Newer biosses allow mapping the PCI hole to a higher memory region.

Or it is some 32bit barrier in grub.
