    If you are using any MS Windows 32-bit (x86) OS, it cannot see and use more then ~3.5 total memory: CPU, RAM, and video card. The 64-bit versions also have memory register limits, but, except for W7 starter and home basic, they exceed 8GB.
  2. No, you must upgrade to 64-bit OS to detect 8 GB. Without upgrading to 64-bit operating system, the computer will not detect all 8 GB, only 3 ~ 3,5 GB.
