The setting for memory sharing with an integrated GPU is found in the BIOS settings.

No need to worry, if video card is detected the onboard video is disabled & return shared memory to system memory automatic(not true for hybrid sli, crossfire & lucid virtu MP). 4gb allocated shared memory is set by win 7 incase video card memory(512MB) run out of space.

GPU temperature is OK.

Post the model of your computer or your motherboard if you have a custom computer.

Why do you THINK you are sharing system memory with your GPU?

Are you running the 32 bit version of Windows 7? If so, that would explain why you only see 4GB of RAM. That is all a 32 bit OS can use.
