ended up with 2gb from global memory, fitted fine and recognised the memory on a start up screen which said press F1 to accept. which i did.. the comp started up in normal way, then I checked the computer properties which shows only 3.25gb ram? any thoughts why the comp only recognizes this amount rather than the 4.096 that it showed on initial screen? the system is geared to take 4gb on 32 bit. btw. Is it something I could look into/amend? cheers

If you read my previous posts then you will realise that 3.25 Gb is the maximum that you can expect for a 32 bit system. That is why I advised not to go for 6Gb. You cannot change it.
