This is a laptop, chances are some of your memory is dedicated to your GPU.

Windows key + r to bring up the runprompt, type "msconfig" without the quotes. Go to boot tab, press "Advanced options..." and make sure the maximum memory is not being limited.

This may or may not be the easiest fix but doing a clean install of windows fixes most of the issues. This is the first thing i do whenever i get a new laptop.

Also check advanced display options (Right Click Desktop -> Screen Resolution -> Advanced Settings) and check the value of Shared system memory and / or System Video Memory. If its 1070mb (4gb - 2.93gb) or somewhere in that range then its your dedicated graphics card sharing the system ram. Normally it wouldn't state only 2.93gb usable but again Lenovo might have older / different controlling drivers installed. Btw, have you updated to the latest AMD Drivers?
