How many DIMM slots the board have? If you still have the MB's manual, there you can look in and somehow will tell you the maximum capacity in (Gigabytes) the board will support.

Before you can support something in software, it has to be supported in the hardware. Since his motherboard won't support more than 2 GB of ram, all the software changes you make won't let him support more than 2 GB. If the hardware can't 'see' it, haw can the software?
