I have a HP XW6400 workstation running XP Pro 32 bit. I Have installed the 8 GB memory kit Kingston KTH-XW667/8G in slots 1 and 3
And removed the original memory.  My bios reports the correct memory size (8 GB) but when I look in Windows XP control panel/System, Windows reports 3 GB . What’s wrong ?

dear windows xp 32 bit does not support more then 3.5GB memory. to use 8 GB memory you have to install 64bit Operating System.

There is nothing wrong with your system, as outlined above, 32 bit can't see more than 4gb (3.5gb) memory


you could always stick in as much memory as possible and install a x64 bit operating system providing your cpu is x64 bit compatible
