Windows Xp Professional

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok have a slight problem, i am running Windows XP Professional version 2002. I was using 2gb of ram for a long time now and was looking ro improve performance so i purchased 2 more gigs of ram. When i go into System Properties it only shows i have 2.37gb of rather then 4gb. Why is this, and what is the max supported Memory for this edition of XP. im just concerned that i bought 2gb more of ram and its not being used. heres a screenshot. Also, Cpu-Z shows the 4gb being there.

not the best image, not sure how to make easier to see, hope this helps. if you hold control and scroll up it will actually zoom in so you can see better.

You are the second person in the last 2 hours to ask about this. Search before you post, especially something like this. A 32 bit OS can only use 4BG RAM. Part of that is the Video card RAM.
Do the Google for "4GB 32 bit"; theres nearly 2 million hits.
