Just installed 2 new sticks to my Dell desktop, totalling 4 gigs. I have XP Pro if that matters. Under General System Properties(control panel) it says the system has 3.25 GBs of RAM. Why doesnt it recognize all 4?? For whatever reason almost a full stick isnt being used. Is this common? Or can I enhance/optimize better?
