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.

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.
