Adding SIMMS to Goldstar GS325S

I have a Goldstar GS325S (386 processor) with 8 x 30 pin SIMMS slots with 4 x 1MB SIMMS in at the moment. I want to upgrade it with 4 X 4MB SIMMS to take it up to 20MB.  When I added the 4 X 4MB SIMMs it only registered a total of 8MB (in other words it sees the $MB chips as 1MB) I then took out the 4 x 1MB SIMMs & replaced them with the 4 ones.  Still only registers 4MB total.  Any ideas please?  Is it that the 386 doesn't recognise the 4MB SIMMs.  Any thoughts would be gratefully received
Thanks
Gerry

Some of the early 386 were able to adress 16 Mb or less RAM and some can't use 4 Mb simms others neede an specific type, i.e. logical parity.

Review the manual and find how much and wich type of memory your MoBo accepts,if you don't have the manual do the following test.

Put the 4x4Mb int he first 4 slots, that means replace the 1Mb simms, and see what happens.  If  you get the 16 Mb put the 1Mb simms in the free slots and check if you get the 20 Mb. It's highly probable that you won't be able to use the memory
