BIOS does not show all installed RAM?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just installed an extra 2GB of RAM for a total of 4GB but the BIOS is only showing 3GB. I check the RAM and they all work fine. My MOBO supports up to 8GB. Any ideas why it only sees 3GB? Thanks Jim.

You're on a 32bit OS.

Yes I know a 32 bit OS will only see 3GB but I'm talking about the BIOS not the OS.
