    SOMEBODY HAS PROBABLY ANSWERED THIS QUESTION ALREADY BUT WAS WONDERING IF THIS IS TRUE.

    ARE THERE PROBS WITH XP PRO WHEN RUNNING MORE THAN 512MB OF RAM AND IF THERE IS, IS THERE A FIX AS I WANTED TO UPGRADE TO 1GB

    ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW THE TRUTH

    It is my understanding that XP can address 4gig of ram if you can find an mb in which you can install this. However there are serious issues concerning the swap file that you would need to contemplate before installing this amount of ram to say nothing of the cost!

    I had 512 mb ram, and xp pro.
    But my computer was restarting automaticly due an hardware error, so I took 1 module of 256 mb ram out, and everything worked fine again.
    Still have to go back with it...

    1.383 gigs of ram. It is a waste, don't do it. stick with 512.
