According to the Crucial Memory Advisor Tool you can max the memory to 8GB

Says however that 32bit Windows will only utilize 3 or 3.5 GB of any installed memory so would seem pointless to add more than you already have - unless you're contemplating moving up to 64bit?

Correct tullie, but you gave no reason why, because you already know and I didn't. I thought people were a little more friendly here. P.

Looks like you will have to upgrade to Vista 64BIT if you can find a copy try W7-64BIT then you will be able to make use of your 4GB ram.
