Oh No not 64 bit!

My August Sirs,

 

I am attempting to add two 1GB sticks to my existing computer currently running with two 1GB sticks in dual channel for a theoretical total of 4GB. All of the memory is Corsair:

 

Now 2 x CM2X-1024 DDR2-6400 800MHZ 1.90V 5-5-5-12

Add 2 X XMS2-1024 DDR2-6400 800MHZ

 

Problem is I get a value of 2814MB when I use the diagnostic 'Everest' no mater what I do. All memory passes Microsofts Memory test, quad, pairs and indiviually.

 

I would prefer not to go to 64 bit. Although I have the OS and because I run Windows I am experienced in reloads so thats not a problem. I think I can handle the driver issues.

 

The question is, do I need to migrate to 64 bit architecture to gain the 4GB value of memory I need? Stated another way, is there something I can do to make the current configuration see the 4GB?

 

Regards,

Eric.

My August Sirs,

 

Thank you for your reply Ram Guy.

 

Ya, I know some of the other hardware devises use up the memory resolution. Which means the answer to the 64 bit question is... Yes. I will have to get to the 64bit OS to see all of my memory with my nVidia 8800 grabbing some and I am suspicious of the Creative SB X-Fi grabbing some too.

Regards,

Eric.
