Yeah a partitioning problem comes to my mind as well, though the 2.7 gigs is slightly odd. A 32bit operating system should see atleast 3gb, i think they go up to 3.5. So if you have 4gb on a 32 bit operating system it should show more then 2.7gb.
If your using a 32bit OS then windows wont see all the 4gb ram, As for the HDD, Straight away im thinking its not partitioned properly, I might be wrong though.
Are you using the onboard graphics card because there's a possibility that it's sharing the ram (though I think 800mb is a bit much for an IGP)?
What file format did you format the HDD in before you installed windows?
