Additional RAM

  prima12 20:29 10 Aug 11

Hi, I am running Vista 32bit with an Athlon 4400 dual core processor with an Asus M2N-MX m/b. I have just add additional ram to give me 4gb from 2gb, I still have 2 vacant ram card slots, would I, or could I, gain any further advantage by installing the old 1gb ram into the other to vacant slots? P.

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?

Which was why i said no in my first post.

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.
