Depends on your OS, for instance XP will only accept up to 3.2Gb RAM. Win7 will accept much more, so if you have Win7 maybe worth a try.

Windows 7 will only see more RAM if you are using the 64 bit version,otherwise it is much the same as XP and will only use around 3 and half gigabyte. So if your operating system is 32 bit either XP or Windows 7 then your 4 GB is more than enough.
