4GB of ram by Waldosr
I just installed an extra 2GB of RAM in my PC bringing the total to 4GB. My BIOS is picking up the 4GB of RAM but vista says that I only have 3GB installed. Any suggestions. I thought Vista supported up to 4GB

4GB or 3GB physical memory for 32 bit wondows vista by JC
I have 4GB of physical RAM, windows vista shows only 3326MB. Does it really help with performance if I have 4GB or should I just install 3GB memory? I just bought the additional 2GB memory (had 2GB before) and wondering if I should exchange for a 1GB one. Thanks.

4Gb RAM, 32bit Vista by LL
After installing SP1 on Vista, the system properties report that I have 4Gb RAM installed, which is true. However it seems that from the Task Manager, it only can handle up to 3 Gb RAM. So is the other 1Gb wasted? Or is it actually in use for other invisible purposes?

4GB RAM??? by mtogni
I have a brand new pc with Vista Pro and 4Gb of RAM DDR800 on board. BIOS correctly recognizes the right amount of memory but Windows don't. It reports only 3,5 RAM. Am I missing something or it's a O.S. limit? Thanks in advance. Michelangelo Togni

5.1 External Sound Card - Vista Problem by Ian Clark
Hi all, I'm not sure if you are aware but Vista comes with a new Sound control panel, which allows you to configure the device based on what it is. My current system is that I have a laptop with only a headphone socket (2.1 sound). I have previously bought an external sound card for Windows XP Media Edition, and that worked to convert the sound into 5.1 sound. The new Vista configure...

5.1 Surround Sound on Vista 64 by Dyawlak
Has anyone got a sound card fully working with 5.1 spearkers yet? I got a Audigy SE which during tests gives me lovely 5.1 - but because the nice developers at M$ removed 3DDirectSound nothing else can use them. So I'm looking for a new board that offers EAX 3 and surround sound 5.1 speaker system
