I might well be on the wrong track here but I'm guessing you are using Windows XP??? If so, then this OS cannot use all of the 4GB although I do believe I've come across a reference to 'switching' which basically means playing around in the system somewhere to force it to recognise more. Someone with more knowledge on the subject would be a better position to advize on this.
I also have 4GB of RAM installed on my system (XP) but right-clicking on 'My Computer' > Preferences indicates that only 2.75GB is being used. In Photoshop (Preferences > Performance) 1684MB is being shown which more or less ties up with yours and it is this that prompted me into believing that you are also on XP.
