Memory Info
« on: Thu Jun 21, 2007 - 07:37:34 »
Last Christmas my son built me a high power gaming computer (my hobby).  Last week we updated it from 2 gig of memory to 4.  The system info showed 4 gig but only 3 gig were being used according to other system information tools.  We took the computer into the Geek squad and learned that the basic XP Home Edition addresses a maximum of 3 gigs of memory.  For most computers, however, you still have to put four gig in because they will not function on odd numbers of sticks (i.e., 3 or 5 sticks).

Thought this info might be helpful to others.
