    Is the backtrack 4 pre final kenrel compiled with PAE support set ? If not you will need to recompile the kernel with Physical Address Extension Physical Address Extension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    If it is, post output of

    Code:
    dmesg | grep e820
    And ..

    Code:
    free -l
    and ..

    Code:
    dmidecode -t 16
    dmidecode -t 17
    and last but not least

    Code:
    lspci -v
