Question about Computers & Internet
Do i need two video cards to run 4 sticks of ram?I have 4 Patrist 1GB pc3200 400MHz & one Ge Force 9500 GT pci-E 2.0 card.But it only reads two GB of ram.or is it two dimm slots for each video card?If i put all four sticks of ram in it only reads 2GB.
No the problem isn't the ram, or video card, or lack of video cards.
The problem stems from using a 32 bit O/S, (Operating System), like Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Pro. (The 32 bit version of XP Pro. Microsoft made a 64-bit version of Windows XP Pro)
A 32 bit O/S will only 'recognize' UP TO 3.2GB's of ram. (Sometimes up to 3.5GB's)
You need a 64 bit O/S so that your computer will recognize all 4GB's of ram, when it is installed.
32 Bit? 64 Bit? What is all of this? It's kind of hard to explain in a few sentences. I would like to refer you to these links on Wikipedia, to explain 32 bit, and 64 bit further,
