The cheapest option for you will be to buy windows 8 upgrade which costs $40. EDIT: Make sure you can live with its interface. | Report abuse danny2000 November 14, 2012 2:57:40 AM I'm not certain, but it looks like it can only see 1gb tops per Kingston using Starter. Windows Home Premium would let you see the full amount. | Report abuse danny2000 November 14, 2012 3:06:56 AM It also shows that you can only put in a max of 2gb in a slot, and the unit has only one slot, so thus you are limited to one 2-gb chip. Not sure what you stuck in there though. | Report abuse yyk71200 November 14, 2012 3:30:11 AM danny may be right, in that case, upgrading OS may do nothing for you. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Laptops & Notebooks>Windows7 start only recognize 2G ram> Related ressources: ForumWindows7 , 32 bit... won't recognize my 8GB ram ForumMotherboard & Windows only recognize 2GB RAM when 4GB installed..why ?
