Thanks for you response, I did check that the motherboard would accept the memory and as I stated in the question the BIOS reports the full 4GB.

Thanks that was the table I was looking for. I was kinda hoping that it would be the answer. So I'm still no wiser to why I'm not seeing memory closer the 4GB being reported.

@Sathya: Thanks for that set but none of them address the question at hand. In fact Windows is reporting 1.93GB, I can grasp it not reporting all of the 4GB but 1.93GB is a big drop from 4.

comment Lexmark C530dn work around for “88 Replace color cartridge” message?
+1 Thanks for the effort, however the instructions are to replace the cartridge first. There is no continue option at the moment, I guess there would if I actually did replace the cartridge.

comment Play Mp4 (and possibly DVDs) in Windows Media Player 11 on Server 2008 (x64)
Thanks thats quite neat, I can now play DVDs. It will play the MP4s but doesn't support the samr audio encoding so its silent.

The version of Media Player is 32 bit so I tried the 32 bit version. I didn't get anywhere with it. Unfortunately exactly as I predicted in my question happened. Once downloaded the installer presents me to the usual codec acronym diahrea, I accept the defaults. I can't be sure thats the correct thing to do but I've got no choice. Media Player still gives me the same error.

comment Using 64bit Windows, how much RAM is sensible for running VisualStudio?
Memory is used for more than addressable memory space. A 32 bit program may well roam around a set of files the total size of which can be way, way greater than 4GB. The more memory a system has installed the greater the chance the required pages from those files are still in memory. These pages can be dynamically swapped in and out of a 32bit application's Virtual Memory space without the need to re-read them from disk. Hence whilst it is true the VS specifically is unlikely to benefit from more than 3GB memory its not true that that is direct a result of its being a 32 bit app.

I'm running the version of media player found in the Program Files (x86) folder. Isn't that a 32 bit app? Wouldn't I need 32 bit codecs for that?
