My MicroSD card doesn't show correct size for format

I recently bought a Kingston 2GB microSD card. On my computer, it asks if I want to format it to a 3.79GB card.
On my Laptop, it asks if I want to format to a 979MB card.

Is there a tool that I can use to get it to the correct size cause I just don't wanna chance it on either one.

Edit: I think I know why... but just to confirm it, I tried putting the card in my sister's phone that accepts MicroSD. It turns out that it read it all perfect with the correct size. And another device I used it with read it. I can only put it in a MicroSD adapter that makes it SD. I can only think that it has to do with the Printer's Card Reader can't read higher than 1GB and the same with my laptop's on-board reader. Would that be correct?
