That cuz component like onboard video is sharing it. If you would have installed a AGP or PCI then it would have most like showed What you have.

its either due to onboard graphics card eating up memory OR its due to a AGP apeture setting size. of course, 12MB is a odd number.... maybe mistyped it.
