I installed XP with SP3 in my dell inspiron 1525 successfully. I huv done it changing the BIOS lil bit …. I huv done SATA to ATA and i disabled the flash cache.
It successfully but the system is not showing the RAM correctly.
I have 4GB of ram but its only showing 3.49GB. I know the system takes some memory but i think it should not be as much as it taking…
previously vista was showing it properly.
can some one tell me what is the issue ???
the thing is this 32 bit XP is unable to use all of your 4 GB ram. it shoud be able to use it all, But for some strange reason Only god and MS understand they maxt the ram at ca 3,49GB as it show for you. u can easyly modify the system to be able to use the last 0,51 GB ram .
