The amount of RAM it can take is based on how much your motherboard can handle.

Tip

Mamimum RAM for User @ 3GB using boot.ini switch on 4GB Physical RAM


The DOS will always take a percentage of the physical RAM on the motherboard leaving the rest for the User. By default the Windows Operating System will use 50% of the physical RAM installed on the motherboard leaving the user the remaining 50% this can be changed using a switch in the boot.ini file

The /3GB was originally meant to be used in systems that have 3GB or more of RAM something that is no longer quite as rare as it used to be Windows XP SP3 will support upto 4GB although on a 32bit (x86) version of Windows will acually see 3.25gb that is the limitation.

However, even if you don't have 3 GB or more of memory, you can still use the /3GB switch. the switch can have any value between 2048 (2 GB) and 3072 (3 GB) megabytes. It needs to be expressed in decimal notation.

The /3GB switch applies to 32-bit systems only (x86).

Example with Windows XP SP3 Home Edition with the recovery console installed this gives you the option of default 50-50% split or the 3GB switch 75-25% split.

The /noexecute parameter enables, disables, and configures Data Execution Prevention (DEP), a set of hardware and software technologies designed to prevent harmful code from running in protected memory locations using the optin switch enables DEP only for operating system components, including the Windows kernel and drivers. Administrators can enable DEP on selected executable files by using the Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT).

The /burnmemory parameter specifies the amount of memory, in megabytes, that Windows cannot use in this example, /burnmemory=128 will reduce the physical RAM memory that is available to Windows by 128 MB.

[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 3GB Switch" /noexecute=optin /3GB /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition " /noexecute=optin /burnmemory=128 /fastdetect
C:CMDCONSBOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons


Check out the noexecute and the 3GB switch plus all available boot.ini switches HERE

I suggest that you use AnalogX MaxMem it is a realtime physical memory management program that automatically ensures that you always have as much physical memory available as possible used with the 3GB switch you should never have memory issues ever again.

RAM Only 3Gb


Err... Do you mean it has more than 3 GB and it sees only 3 GB or it has only 3 GB?
For first one: You are probably using a 32 bit operating system. For example, Windows XP 32 bit sees only 3 GB of RAM. Fix it by installing other operating system(or simply a 64 bit version). Also, linux is known to work with more than 3 GB of RAM even on 32 bit system.
Second one:
You could buy some aditional RAM, but first check which RAM type are you using(DDR, DDR2 or DDR3). Also, you should check if there are any free slots left, and does motherboard support more RAM.

These are the specs, but I don't see 64 Bits support. Hence it must be running 32 bit and Windows 32 Bit has a 3GB limitation. Furthermore, even if it did recognize it. Your applications must be written to utilize more RAM. For instance I have 16GB and never seen the usage go more 3GB.

I would have thought that your total system ram memory is 3Gb...your vga memory of 358Mb is for your video graphics adapter...3Gb of video memory would be very unusual on a laptop...

My cmos does not see 4GB of memory


If you only run a 32 Bit OS it will only recognize 3 GB of RAM. You must have a 64 bit system and OS for it to recognize more than 3 GB of RAM.

Good Luck,

Hi, I want to purchase one of the laptop of CW series having RAM 2 GB. but I read in one of the booklet, I got to know that for smooth performance we have to have 3 GB RAM. because of windows 7 ..64 bit.


Yes the computer will have better performance with 3 GB of memory but 2 GB is the minium requirment for windows 7 64 bit,expecially if you run extra application you will be glad you had the 3GB.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
