What Asus sometimes do with their motherboards is say it can support upto a certain amount of memory, but you have to use different speeds, eg you cannot use all at PC3200, why this is I don't know. If you are able also try setting the bus speed to something like 333MHZ then installing memory(refer to asus manual) But remember you void the warranty if not fitting recommended spec of memory, i would e mail ASUS because your kit is not cheap to replace.

Can I do a memory upgrade on Sony VGC -LS 37E?

the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.

Hp xw9300 has 4gb of memory installed however the system properties only shows 2 gb of memory. the bios shows 4gb of memory

This article alnog with the possibility that your graphics card is using maybe a gig of memory may explain why you don't see the 4G memory in system properties. Of course it would be useful to indicate what operating system you're using.

if you are using a 32 bit operating system it will not recognize all of the memory in some instances or the mobo is not designed for more than 2 gb maximum check the mainboard (motherboard) website for specs on your model. sometimes you have to use 64 bit operating system to be able to get the full use of memory over 2 GB

More ram and vdeo card

it sounds as if your MoBo is seeing the video adapter as a source of ram. if that is the case, then installing memory in units of 1Gb will cause a stick to not be seen, therefore utilized. you may want to refer to you manual for memory limits and poosible comparibility issues. they are usually quite in depth. also, make sure that they are all the same make model and speed. these issues have wreaked havoc on the prettiest of pc's.
