With 4gb installed on the system here XP will see about 3-3.12gb out of that while Vista SP1 and 7 beta are seeing some 3.581gb total with about 2.8gb free after Windows and all startups. Both list 4gb in the system properties.

"I would like to inform you that the Motherboard is the component which sets the limitations to the devices connected to it and also the BIOS plays a vital role in accepting or denying the devices connected to the Motherboard. Additionally, I regret to inform you that HP does not have any tested information with the harddrives more than 80GB, due to these reason we recommend you to purchase the 80GB for your notebook. "
