Yeah you should upgrade. Windows xp 32bit only support up to 3gb memory. You should upgrade to 64bit.
And your specs? Yeah it can run 64 bit operating systems or if you like, use Windows Vista x86 or x64 with Service Pack 1.

How to make Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition see more than 4GB RAM


Issue – After upgrading a server to Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition and adding additional memory, the OS still shows only 4 GB of RAM.

Additional Information – Physical Address Extension (PAE)

In Windows Server 2003, PAE is automatically enabled only if the server is using hot-add memory devices. In this case, you do not have to use the /PAE switch on a system that is configured to use hot-add memory devices. In all other cases, you must use the /PAE switch in the Boot.ini file to take advantage of memory over 4GB.

The newer Dell servers are capable of using hot-add memory devices, but the older servers do not.

If you upgrade an older Dell server and are experiencing the issue above, make the following change to the boot.ini file.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /fastdetect /PAE

Add the /PAE flag to the end of the boot device. Then reboot the server.

After rebooting the correct amount of memory should be displayed

To summarize, PAE is a function of the Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 memory managers that provides more physical memory to a program that requests memory. The program is not aware that any of the memory that it uses resides in the range greater than 4 GB, just as a program is not aware that the memory it has requested is actually in the page file.

Hi edmondlukwag
I think we are talking about two different memory models here : the physical memory is 512 MB while the virtual one is 1024 MB , that's probably why your games remain playing smoothly .

if you have 8GB RAM you have to use a 64 bit version of the operating system to recognize it correctly.

Low virtual memory


Ok let me help you, hopefully you have atleast 2GB of hard drive space left.

Step 1: Double-click Control Panel

Step 2: Double-click System

Step 3: Click on the advanced Tab

Step 4: Click the "Settings" button under Performance

Step 5: Under Performance options Click on the Advanced Tab

Step 6: Click "Change" under Virtual Memory

Step 7: Select Custom Size, ( if custome size is grayed out uncheck Automaticall manage paging...)

Step 8: Change Custom Size to 2048, if you have more than 3 Gigabytes on your harddrive available, change the custom size to 3072.

Step 9: Hit the "Set" button then "ok"

You may need to restart your computer after this is complete.

This is really just a temporary fix. I would suggest purchasing more Ram for your computer. If you would like you may reply to this message with the make and model of your computer and I will gladly look up what you need to upgrade.

Intel q6600 quadcore with dg33fb motherboard with 6gb not 3gb ;)


this sounds like a bug of some sort to me. if windows is seeing 6gb it should have 6gb but to be sure recheck the mobo book to see if you have it installed properly then check your bios to see if all 6gb is registering for real.
