What is the max system memory for XP 32 bit, and does all other memory on the board, including Video card memory reduce the max?

More about : max memory bit

4 GB minus everything else like the video card, etc. Depending on your hardware, that leaves 2.5-3.2 GB available.

Thanks, that's what I thought. I'm a member of another tech sight and the fools there just don't get this, even when I post a half dozen links. I needed to find some that knows what they are talking about.

You can put 4GB in put Win XP32 will only recognize 2.75GB.

I know, I tried it.

It all depends on your hardware boris. Check out the 2nd post.

I've got 4G of RAM and XP 32 bit and it sees 3.25G of RAM. This is the max it'll see.

Stupid question here - I'm only showing 2.99 gb on My Computer Properties. So that's the amount after the machine takes away what it wants for video memory on a laptop, and any other things? I have a Toshiba Satellite A05-S4284 running XP Media Center edition.

OK if that's the max it will see and you have 4 GB of ram installed... are you getting the benefits of the 4 GB and only seeing the 3.25? In other words, if I have 4 GB ram and a 1GB video card with XP32 what am I getting out of it?

All you get use of is 3.25 in that case the other .75 is just sitting there doing nothing.

If you have 1 gig of video ram, you should only get use of less than 3 gigs, because video RAM is not the only other memory.


You have BIOS, video BIOS, and a little more, that I can't think of at the moment.
