32bit OS's either XP or Vista will only see roughly 3 gigs. It's slightly more but nowhere near 4 gigs. If you want to see all 4 gigs go with a 64 bit version and quit screwing arounds with voltages and timings, as it has nothing to do with it.

Sorry about the double post here.
No there is not a magic switch in the bios to make it work.
