Wait a second.

Crucial is Micron's very own sales front. Why would that be a cheat?

I didn't find much about this PC such as make and model or if PAIRS matter and in what slot. The OS can hurt here as 32 bit OS could indeed run slower with more ram since you don't have the open space for other devices.

Tell more.

Here are some details..

Well, I did not know that Micron and Crucial is the same.How come one chips is taller that another one ? That's what I thought was a cheat.

Could be many things.

I'd reset the BIOS settings and change what you needed to the time you set it up.

The 3GB is sadly less with XP. Even with that /3GB boot.ini switch I found very few apps that were compiled for that so we still get the usual 2.1 to 3.5GB used by the OS and 2.0GB per app tops. This is a sad story of an upgrade that should have been forgotten about.

How you can find your way back to the old setup.
