You said your motherboard manual can support 4GB of ram. I assume that this the max it can support, right?
What I have found frequently, is often when you either fill all the ram slots and/or install the maximum amount of ram supported, the bios will lower the ram FSB speed. For example, if you install 4GB of DDR400, the bios might lower the FSB speed to 333MHz.
This is not to say that you will experience this problem, but it would be worth checking out on the motherboard manufacturers website. You may even find that there's a bios update available to overcome any such issues.

Yes, it's the maximum the motherboard can support. Thanks, I'll check up on that. I've heard that even if you put the maximum amount of RAM in, Windows won't 'see' it all. Is this true?

i think this is correct i could be wrong but
XP can only handle up to 3.25 gigs
and what would you need 4 gigs for thats a bit of overkill for now anyway
