Your motherboard doesnot offer dual channel memory architechture and 2x2GB memory is taken in sigle channel mode. Apart from that 32bit Operating Systems don't recognise memory over 3 Gb. So you have the following options...
1. Attach only one 2GB
2. Attach 2GB + 1GB
3. Move up to a 64bit OS with your current 2x2GB memory modules.
Please collect memory module of the same frequency if you consider option 2.

This is your board by the numbers you supplied:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131199
You have Via P4M900 and VT8237 chipsets and Realtek ALC662(sound)
This is Asus's link for your board:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5VD2VM_SE/#download
It's supported to Windows Vista so, it may or may not work with Windows 7.
You can try your sound here, if necessary:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=24&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
and, this is Via's link:
http://www.via.com.tw/en/support/drivers.jsp
It appears your board has the support for Windows 7, if that is what you are running so these should be all you need. Let me know if I can help you further.

I have installed 2, 2 gig sticks of ram and it only shows up as 2.5 gigs on my system specs.


Hi,

This mainly happens on Windows XP X32 (32 bit) operating systems. if you were to install a 64 bit (x64) version of XP then the real amount of system memory will be shown on the system information page.

With Windows Vista it is shown after you have installed service pack one for the 32 bit versions.

Saying that if you press Ctrl, Alt and Del, start Task Manager and then click on the processes tab, maximize the window and count the number of memory being used then you will see that the computer is utilizing all of the system memory available to the machine even though it's doesn't show it in the system page..

Please post back if you require anymore information.

Regards.

You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep

Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.
