Re: RAM memory v. windows XP home ed.

Hello Harryh31,


the amount of memory that your system will support is determined by the capacity of the motherboard, although the operating system plays a part in how much it will recognise.  Windows Xp 32 bit versions will utilise between 3-3.5GB of RAM, even if more is supported by the motherboard and installed.


The best way to find a compatible upgrade for your system is to use our System Scanner or Memory Selector tool via the home page of our website.
