However, each application is limited to using 2GB of ram (applies to windows). x64 apps can access up to 8TB.
I tried the /PAE trick, it failed.

Very odd. Your motherboard chipset only supports 4GB address space, which means you should theoretically be seeing 3GB available memory even in 64-bit versions of Windows.

Are you sure you're looking at "available system memory", not "total system memory" or "installed system memory"?
