    Specs :

    ASUS a8n32-SLI Deluxe Mobo
    Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Ver. 2002

    Here's my question ... I recently added 2GB of RAM to the 2GB I already had installed . My system is showing the RAM as being there in my BIOS , but , when I run DXDIAG only 1GB is showing out of the 4GB I have installed . Is it because of the Windows version I am running and if so , what can be done ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated !

    Welcome to TSG....

    Windows XP will only see 3 Gb RAM and that is it. Do you have any service packs installed?

    Sounds like what you added is not compatible and possibly some of what you had already. Did you check a configurator at a ram maker site or Asus site to make sure all ram is compatible?

    I bought the RAM from the Crucial website after running their scanning tool , they said it was compatible . I read the specs for the memory and it matches what the mobo calls for.
