Can I have more than 2GB of Memory? Tags: Memory Motherboards Last response: August 22, 2008 3:55 PM in Memory Share loganmj August 22, 2008 3:28:48 PM I've been searching for answers for days and can't seem to find anything. I bought 4 GB of RAM to completely replace my current 2GB. Bios recognized it but my OS still said 2.0. Did I need to change some settings? I don't have a motherboard manual and can't seem to find any info about my motherboard. I was able to see some info inside my computer. Foxnn L S-36 rev A00 computer specs: XP - Media Center ED.

Thank you, - logan More about : 2gb memory deuce271 August 22, 2008 3:36:54 PM 32 bit OS's cannot use 4GB of memory. The actual usage varies it seems but I've seen some people only get as much as 2GB. You should be able to get 3GB though... There's literally a million of these threads that popped up once ram got cheap. If you want 4GB, you need a 64 bit OS. loganmj August 22, 2008 3:48:21 PM Yeah, I think I have discovered that I can't get 4GB but I would be happy with 3GB. I'd like to use the 3GB switch to be able to run CS2 faster. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

I suspect you need to tell Windows about the new RAM somehow. At worst, reinstall Windows. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
