Bug Description

My computer is a Acer Aspire 5735

The initial RAM was 2.9GO: 1 stick of 2GO and 1 of 1GO.
I substitute the 1GO stick by a 2GO.
The problem is that it isn't taken in count in the system monitor, and ubuntu doesn't handel the 4GO (it uses swap when needs more than 2.9GO).
System monitor should show 4GO, but still shows only 2.9GO.

And free -h, returns:

              total utilisé libre partagé tamp/cache disponible
Mem: [b]2,9G[/b] 923M 1,0G 187M 964M 1,6G

Partition d'échange: 5,2G 0B 5,2G

lshw -c returns :
sudo lshw -c memory

In the bios, the 4GO appears.

sudo dmidecode | grep -i "maximum" returns:
