ram doesn't disappear anywhere.
I'd guess you have an integrated vid card which uses some of the ram.

you cannot prevent the death of RAM. just like any other computer part, it will go when it's time comes.

like mammikoura said, your case is probally caused by some of the RAM being taken for onboard video.
