Verify your BIOS settings that the 4 GB of RAM is configured as all 4 GB useable by the system.

On my brand new Dell PowerEdge, now running FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE under
test, there is 4GB RAM, but looking at dmesg.boot, this is what shows:

real memory 268173312 (261888K bytes)
available memory 255455235 (249468K bytes)

This is 2GB RAM only showing, with kernel.GENERIC.

There must be something I need to compile in the kernel so as to access
more than 2GB RAM.

I have compiled "options PAE" in the kernel but it still does not see
the full 4GB RAM.
