I have 4GB of memory in my computer. In the Properties of My Computer in XP it says I have 3GB of memory. msinfo32 and SIW (System Info for Windows) both report 4GB.

Why is My Computer > Properties reporting only 3GB

i assume u use a 32 bit version of XP
never mind cause all 32 bit systems wil only see about 3 gb of memory even if you put 6 gb in

i would suggest that if you fully want to use the 4 gb or more (in future ) get a 64 bit OS

Thank you. The reason I asked was I was about to buy 64bit Win7 and wanted to be sure all 4 gb would be used.
