Will extra computer memory be used if the maximum is exceeded?

Windows XP can't use over 2.1 GB of RAM for applications though up to 4 GB can be allocated. The extra RAM is used for the system only. It shouldn't hurt to have extra there.

Gateway MP8708 Won't boot past BIOS and won't boot into CD/USB/Safe Mode on XP - Blank screen with keyboard dead - Num locks on and wireless light

Somehow your MBR (Master Boot Record) likely got corrupted or possibly your hard drive went bad coincidentally.

Simply, you will start your computer from your Windows CD/DVD install disk, then when at a DOS prompt ( D:\ ) you will then type: FDISK /MBR (press enter).

Find your Operating System install DVD and start your computer with it, then follow instructions within this discussion:
Restore Windows XP MBR without Windows XP disc

Alternatively, review my search results for other instructions:

Will windows xp supported in amd sempron 145?

No it should not.

However your post does have one confusing detail - XP when installed does not reside on the motherboard but on a Hard Disk Drive. Parts of it will be loaded into memory when you boot up the PC.

If you mean that you are also installing a new Gigabyte MB under an existing installation of XP, you will probably still need the XP system disk for a reinstall of XP as it may not recognise the new MB.

If you are newly installing XP in an existing PC with the specs you mention, it should be ideal. It is best to have enough memory on board, at least 1 Gb.

When I start up my Dell Latitude D610, it will go throught the boot sequence, and imediatly after the microsoft windows XP loading screen is shown, a blue screen apears that goes by too quick to read. Then...

Pressand hold the key while powering the system on. This will run theDell Diagnostics. Another more intense diagnostic program is located on a DellCD that you should have received with your laptop. Look for one that has "Diagnostics and utilities" listed underthe "Contents". You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power onyour laptop and tap the key to bring you to the "One time bootmenu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit key. Select the "Run the 32 Bit DellDiagnostics". If the laptop runs the diagnostics without errors then you have a software issue. If it is a hardware issue (i.e. memory,hard drive) diagnostics will indicate faulty component.

Explorer.exe Application error in Windows XP Professional SP2

This could be a memory problem or a problem with the OS (XP). If you can boot the original XP CD like your doing an install then it's not a memory problem more the likely. Can you boot your XP CD?
