Question about Dell Dimension 5150 Intel Pentium 4 w/HT Technology 3.0GHz,800FSB,80GB HD,512MB DDR2 RAM, CD-RW/DVD ... (D5150) PC Desktop
I have installed 4 * 1GB ram and, on start up, set-up shows each slot contains 1Gb as expected. However I also have PC Registry Mechanic running and this says I only have 2 GB of Ram! Which is right? Am I getting the proper use of my 4 GB?
Unless you are running a 64-bit version of XP or Vista, Windows will not report the full 4GB. It's because of the way the program addresses and uses RAM. Here is a page that gives a little explanation. The bottom line is that if you want to get the full use of 4GB of RAM you need the 64-bit operating system.
