I have 4gb usb but it is showing only 1.96mb total capacity i have try many softwares like bootic but still have this problem pleas tell me solution.


did you buy an offshore product from ebay and etc?? this are known fraudulent products and your best bet is to buy from USA sources..
also your pc a P4 with 512 mb ram is holding you back... you need at least 2GB ram these days on your pc... your system limits only 1Gb at best... see crucial.com for a free system scan to see what memory is max for your system
If money is an issue.. there is now some good remanufactured systems on market from BestBuy.com for around $200

851 MHz Celeron Processor


*********** board will support a max of 1GB of RAM. Your processor is an Intel at 1.8 GHz. The preceding is only true if your PC is the Emachines T1840 as you chose in the category listing of your post. Again if that is true, you can achieve the max RAM by installing a 512MB stick in each of the two memory slots.
Good luck.

PS: Gdlkn84as528 is correct in assuming that a less than 1.3GHz Intel processor would be a P3 or equivalent processor. So which is it, it can't be both ways?

Problem whit media player not responds acer power 4300 pentium III RAM 316 XP PROFESIONAL SP3 Media Player 11 30 GB HDD


you need to wait for the system to response.because media player 11 is designed for vista,but it also compatible with xp.but it works good only if u have 512 mb ram as minimum.so it is advisable to upgrade your ram.

I have 256 MB RAM which is slow, can i upgrade it to 512 MB RAM


Depends completely on what motherboard the computer has and what it supports, I could check on it if you have and brand and model of the computer, or from the motherboard.

Sure the prosessor speed doesn't affect the memory amount possible don't worry about that, just need to find out how much is supported and at what speed etc.

Thanks,
Ekse
