I think the most likely cause for this is onboard video reserving 128MB of RAM (some BIOS exclude the 1MB of low memory).

What is the brand and model of the computer or mainboard, and is it actually using onboard video or a discrete video card?

The BIOS should report the total amount of memory installed
The system is allocating some for the onboard sound and network
In the beginning there was the command line.

You could fit a video card to the PCIe slot (one which uses its own memory, some cards also share system RAM). Or if you don't need the video to be any better for your purposes, it would probably be less involved and cost less to increase the amount of RAM fitted.
