Windows 7: xp 32-bit to recognize full capacity of RAM

xp 32-bit to recognize full capacity of RAM

Hi,

Is it possible for win xp 32-bit to recognize full capacity of RAM?

Consideration:

I have a DDR3 RAM and my laptop is hp pavillion dv6-2020.
My original OS was Windows 64-bit 7 Home Edition. I formatted that and installed XP 32-bit!

Hi there
unless you've found a way around the Laws of Physics Win XP 32 bit will only ever recognize 4GB RAM -- Maximum.

From this you need to subtract amounts used by the video if your video is integrated with the mobo.

The maximum amount the OS will probably report as available will be around 3.3GB.

W2K3 server X32 R2 Enterprise edition with SP2 applied can address 128 GB RAM BTW.

W2K3 Server R2 Datacenter edition X32 can address 128 GB

It does this by using the /PAE feature as explained in this article

Large memory support is available in Windows Server 2003 and in Windows 2000
