I'm trying to understand why upgrading to the full 4 GB of memory on my laptop (or any computer for that matter) can only recognize 3 GB of memory (maybe 3.5 max if you're motherboard supports it)?
I was reading on sites is that it has to do with the capabilities of your software.
Basically, the 32-bit windows only has the capacity to recognize the 3-3.5 GB, while the 64-bit version of windows can recognize the full 4GB.
I have a new server that recognizes 50GB of memory (uber fast!).
So in the end, just save your money and buy the 3-GB upgrade rather than the 4GB upgrade?
