Memory upgrade

  Scubaman 15:39 25 Feb 2011

I have just installed another 2GB memory stick in my laptop, which was recommended via the crucial website. After installation I ran the Belarc Advisor and it states that I have 2 x 2048 DIMMs, yet it also states that I have only 3320 MB usable installed memory. Any ideas why?

Some of the memory is taken up by Graphics etc.

Running A 32bit system XP?

32bit systems can not see more than your states 3.5G of memory

Also if running XP - XP will only 'find' a maximum of 3.2Gb RAM.
