BIOS seems not to be the latest version. Upgrading may be a solution.

thank you all for looking into this

i find very interesting this link https://www.linuxquestions.org/question ... 119-print/ (which is probably by the same person from stevos link) where he says that "The problem disappeared with new kernel 3.8.0-19-generic. The system recognize 3,7GB of Memory now."
so, i'll try tomorrow with the day light to move ram to the other slot and see what happens. bios upgrade seems difficult and risky job for me and i suspect most possible to be a kernel issue, especially with the recent mess caused by meltdown and spectre.

thanks again
