32 bit versions of XP and Vista won't recognize 4 gB of RAM. While I haven't heard of this happening in the BIOS, it is possible. On my system (with an MSI mobo) I've got 4 gB that works just fine (but is only recognized as 3.25 gB).
Try removing 2 of the sticks to see if it'll boot. Then swap the sticks to see if the other 2 will boot. If both boot, then there's an issue in the BIOS that won't let you use 4 gB of RAM. You might check the Gateway site to see if there's a BIOS update that will take care of this.
