IF THE BIOS does only find 3 GByte, then tere is  something  wrong  with
your Laptop or the BIOS and this has nothing to do with Debian.
This is probably irrelevant but it may help someone searching the archives.  I bought a Thinkpad X61 with 4GB a while back.  At first it would recognise more than 3gb on either windows or squeeze.  I checked the BIOS which was registering 4Gb.  I had many other things to do and left it for a while.  The windows deficiency must have been fixed in the Vista (shudder) SP1 update but the Debian shortfall continued and I've been following this thread.

I use aptitude and found the following kernel package: linux-image-2.6.26-2-686-bigmem

Installed it, rebooted and hey presto,cat /proc/meminfo gives:

MemTotal:      4074284 kB

Thanks. You guys are so great.
