Windows 2003 4GB RAM Support

I have lenovo T60p laptop with 4GB RAM. I installed Windows 2003
Server Enterprise Edition and setup the boot as follows:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003,
Enterprise" /fastdetect /PAE

However, I can only see 3GB RAM. I wonder if you know any other ways
to setup and utilize 4GB RAM
Thanks
Baskar

Under Windows, no.

The specs to the T60p quote 3GB as the maximum RAM and this is all
Windows is willing to address on the chipset. You could never have the
full 4 GB anyway as other devices on the 32-bit PCI bus need memory
addresses to communicate.
