This is a limitation of Windows XP. There is no fix. You would have to install Vista to be able to address all 4GB. I would not necessarily recommend this "upgrade" as Vista OS will consume more memory anyway, leaving you less free memory for your applications. The end result may not give you any better performance but there will be much pain in getting everything setup as you had it on XP. On the other hand, if it is a relatively new install and you dont have many customisations, then perhaps the more stable OS would be worth it. Your choice.

The first possibility is your settings for your memory are incorrect. Boot into your BIOS and change the settings to the correct timings etc. (would be easier if I knew your exact motherboard and ram (memory) information).
Or it could be the ram is defective. Return it and get a new one.
If you want to be really sure your ram is defective. Go to this site and download and install to any of the available options then boot from it. Run a test on your memory (WARNING takes a looong time). Also, did you take the old one out?

Hope this helps and good luck.

Upgrading your Iomega P400U


I was trying to upgrade the capacity of the NAS by adding 320 gb hard drives. I kept running into problems with the bios not supporting the drives and not finding drivers for the system. I came across an Open Source program called FreeNas that solved all the problems. It works great.

I have got a compaq presario 6000 series pentium 4 desktop. I bought a 1GB kingston PC2100 DDR ram, 266Mhz ram for upgrade from my earlier 256MB ram. Somehow my desktop doesn't detect the memory upgrade...


the bios might be seeing it but windows might not, the possibility exists that windows is not able to view the full amount of ram installed try this. go to the start menu > accessories > system tools option and look for the system information tool, this will tell you more about the ram installed, note: windows dose on occasion report the wrong amount of ram when their is a 64 bit os installed or their is a 64 bit system

From the information you sent, I can't figure out the exact make & model of your motherboard, but I would guess that it supports a maximum of 2 GB of RAM. So, I would suggst you try to install 2 RAM modules, each of them 1 GB in capacity & see if this works.
From my previous experience, most motherboards with only 2 slots for RAM modules support only a maximum of 2 GB RAM total.

Installation


do you have any operating system disks or restore disks, if so re-install with the restore disks and it will be just as it would have been, what operating system are you using, probably windows xp or vista, but most likely solution is to re install the OS, or try exploring any other options given by the error dialog.
