Ok, could be bad RAM, take it out, and swap slots, and try others if you can..does the computer have onboard video?

onboard video cards use the ram from the computer as memory. This is the most likely explanation for all of the ram not showing up, some of it is dedicated to the vid card.

I have 512MB of system RAM, but my laptop video component uses 128MB from it so I'm left with 38 MB for my main system.

It looks like 64MB is being allocated somewhere else according to what you have posted up there, hmmm.
