oh no…it is not an outdated board so why it support only 2gig??//

Make sure your OS also supports 4GB, 32-bit Vista does not supports it for sure, so even though my laoptop hosts 4 gb, Vista does not recognizes/uses it.

how can i knw whether it is 32bit or 64bit version???

if you dont know which version you are using then i am sure you are using the 32bit. Almost everyone on 64bit knows that they are using it.

btw to check your version.

Go to: Start -> Run

Type: winver

If you see x64 in the version number then its 64bit. If you dont see x64 in it then its the 32bit one

x64 is not mentioned in the version number…means i m using 32bit…how can i upgrade to 64 bit versioni??

Install new windows from cd, remember that if you connect external (usb) devices, make sure that you have their drivers (64 bit version). Drivers are a major disadvantage of 64 bit windows.

Windows XP 32 Bit supports upto 4GB RAM, but as it does not have PAE and will only allow 2GB Ram (or 3GB if a manual setting is used) to be used by applications, having 4GB on 32bit is almost useless. See this for more information

ok lets move to the main question will my board support 4gb???????

Considering the following information is correct, the total memory it supports is 4GB: 2GB maximum per slot.
