Question about PC Desktops
If your MoBo supports 4 Gigs, Vista 32 bit will only utilize approximately 3.48GB, and XP 32 bit will only use 2GB, so unless you are running Vista 64 bit (which will use up to 8GB, if your MoBo will?), the OS isn't going to see but 2 to 3+ depending on which version of windows you're running,
As for the slots being too big, you are probably attempting to install the wrong RAM for your MoBo. Compare the RAM in question with what the MoBo manufacturer says is compatible.
Good luck, and I hope I helped you.

check to make sure you have added the right type of memory. also look at your user manual. it should tell you where and how to place the added sticks. sometimes they have to be added in pairs or have to be in specific slots. also if you dont have the manual it is on the gateway site. you should type in your model and serial number and get all the info you need.
