Because you have

On Board Video some of your System RAM is used to drive the Video.

If you look in the BIOS you can change the amount of Ram set aside to be used by the Video and make any changes required there though 256 MEG is still fairly small for Video these days.

If you are using a Plug In Video Card you can go into BIOS and disable the On Board unit so that you can use all of the installed RAM for System Memory.
