Dont see where it says you can't use 4gb ram at all. Plus I dunno what you mean exactly because there are no single 4gb sticks.

this should make it better. right it says C - supports two pairs of modules inserted into the yellow and black slots as two pairs of dual-channel memory configuration

but

if you look, where its got 1024MB there isnt a black dot there which means that you cant do it, sooo u cant have 4GB in
