trouble getting 32-bit Vista to recognize all of my RAM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just built a new system for vista, the prob is I got 4gb of ram and well vista dosnt seem to like it

    during install it would keep on crashing, I took out 2 gbs and it worked fine, I put the 2 gb back in and vista only sees 2.5gb.

    I know that vista can take 4gb. So is this a prob with my mobo, ram or vista

    Mobo - evga Nforce 680i Sli

    RAM - Corsair TwinX DDR2 XMS2 Dominator, PC8500

    Vista - ultimate 32bit

    when i run system analysis sofware like cpu-z or belarc they both see the 4gb of ram

    can any one help!
