Its awkward because in 32-bit, you could use upto 2.5gb ram. Better upgrade to 64-bit Windows.

As many of you have stated a 32-bit operating system is only capable of using 2GB of RAM but you are wrong. 32-bit operating systems support 4GB of RAM. The only version of any Windows operating system that supports only 2GB of RAM is the 32-bit starter edition of windows operating systems. To answer your question there is no reason your computer shouldn't recognize 4GB of RAM unless the memory stick you have is not compatible with the motherboard. Where did you buy the memory and did you install it yourself? Also give me the info for the computer model and the brand of memory you put into the computer. Also it should give you a 4 digit number after DDR3 like 1333, 1600, 1900, etc. I need to know that number.

Hi the reason is simple the mother board in the laptop is not designed to access more memory. so time to ungrade as laptops have designed features which will not allow this. time to understand that a desktop if game play is your thing is the best answer.
