Is he using a 64bit windows or 32bit? because it seems like you are using a 32bit window which can make a lot of difference in performance.
64bit windows means that the windows are using the RAMS to the fullest.

Are your graphics card's drivers updated? And I am a bit surprised that even though you're using 64bit of windows only 3.95gb out if 8gb is usable... That might be the issue, idk what needs so much of reserved Ram, probably the bios? Bios doesn't need so much of Ram, mine takes almost 35mb only

It is 100% the issue, if her/his friend using the entire 8 gb of his rig then that is the issue and that is what making her get less fps than her/his friend.

How big of a difference are we talking?
Do you think that your experience is bad overall, or just comparing to your friend?
Does the issue occur on all games?
Are you using the same settings?
Is the game multiplayer? Could it be a network connection slowing you down?

What do you get on epic settings? "Low" settings is more intensive on the CPU, which might play a part - but doesn't explain the entire discrepancy.

I assume you have 2x4GB? Have you tried to post the system with each module, individually? Try each module, alone, in various slots. I wouldn't be surprised if one module is defective.

Does your friend have the exact same specs? Not just the same CPU or GPU, is it entirely the same?

All the same but on epic i get 100 in loading screen and game but it says 8gb installed but 3,95 usable
What games do you play? That's one askable question according to me, that might be a factor as well, as it can be a CPU intensive game and you have a cpu that's less powerful than your friend's and does your friend has no limitations like you are only allowed to use 3.95gb out of your 8gb, so does he have any limitations like that?
