@the_drow: that contradicts what @Zack is saying here - that even Win7 32-bit cannot handle more than 3GB. According to you, why can my Win7 x86 VM not handle 4GB?

Is that limitation only for virtual machines? When I had Win XP (32 bit) on my main machine, it was using all 4 GB...?

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
After a little more stress testing it turns out, as you suggested, that one of the memory sticks was defective. It might just have needed a little of extra time to complete its stress test, but this morning I came in to find a BSoD waiting for me. I clearly narrowed it down to one defective memory stick, so I guess the answer points should belong to you... :)

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
@Axidos - totally weird. I'm sure I tried this before, but I decided to try again: I put my new memory in the yellow channels and the old in the red channels. Now my system is working perfectly - with 8GB! The only difference from before is that previously I had the memory sticks in the opposite colored slots i.e. old in yellow, new in red... not sure why that's make a difference. So seeing as your is the suggestion that seems to have made the difference, you get the answer credit! Maybe now you can leave comments! ;)

I started up the system with the new memory in place of the old, and it worked fine.

@Shinrai - my new memory is 800 MHz, old memory is 400 MHz. The packaging of the new memory (which they didn't advertise on the online store!) says compatible with 533, 667 and 800 Mhz. But If it's a compatibility issue, why was I able to start up into safe mode?
