Default laptop not recognizing RAM

Sorry if this question was already asked but I recently bought an http://www.everex.com/products/xt5000t/xt5000t.htm and http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820144066, now the max ram the laptop can hold is 4 GBs which is what i bought.

But in system properties, it shows up as 3GBs of RAM. I running on Vista Home Premium. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Default Re: laptop not recognizing RAM

Is this 32bit vista your running? If it is then it sounds like your hitting the 4GBRAM limit, this applies to all 32bit OSes. Take a look here http://www.vistaclues.com/reader-que...windows-vista/
