Without knowing the name of the motherboard we can not help. Download and install cpuZ and you will get that information. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

That CPU was right around the time when AGP was being phased out for PCIe, and most of the PCIe MOBOs had a 2X2GB 4GB limit of for DDR2 and AGP 2X1GB 2GB for DDR. The CPU itself is limited to 4GB via it's 32-bit instruction set.

As rolli59 mentioned - Name + Model of the MOBO; see Mainboard tab.

However, your PC is 6~8 years old and it's really time to buy all new. The differences with the P55/P67/X58 are 4~6 times faster, and having 4 to 6 cores is ... well a joy.

6 moths ago I upgraded from a Pentium 4 3.0GHz w/HT to a Core i7 980X rig and the performance increase is incredible. I recommend overhauling your system with a Sandy Bridge CPU and a new mobo, maybe even an SSD. You won't be disappointed.
