    Just have 2gb in and i bet it boots.
    XP isn't too clever at 4gb and even if it did boot with 4gb in, XP certainly won't recognise it.

    Re: help with memory geil 800mhz

    First off try upping the voltage to it. There is no 4gb issue in XP with regards to it booting.
    XP won't recognise the full 4gb due to hardware limitations. Its nothing to do with XP

    You can use 4gb and XP fine, you just wont be able to use the full amount. If you search my posts, I've gone into real detail of the issue

    Re: help with memory geil 800mhz

    Ive booted in to xp and it works for a few minutes the freezes ive upped the voltage to just under 2.3v and its making no difference

    When ive checked its seeing the normal 3.5gb i dare not give any more voltage incase it ***s it up. ive been on the geil site and there seems to be alot of people with this problem and they are told to up the volts but i havent read any stories where thats worked.

    Did i metion that i have 4gb of corsair in and thats never been any trouble ive had to put my old ram back in till i can find a answer i guess its right better the devil you know and i bet im not going to see that much difference from 667 to 800/900 so you ask is it worth the agro.

    Someone else here plus myself have no problem with Geil at 1.9v in winxp or vista or O/C, your problem is either faulty memory or lies elsewhere.........this is with 2gb and as in previous post try that amount.

    Re: help with memory geil 800mhz

    Pretty sure I've seen problems reported with many motherboards trying to run 4GB of RAM at better than 667 MHz. Try underclocking the RAM to 667 and see if it becomes stable.

    What happens if you run pre-OS tests, like memtest?

    Re: help with memory geil 800mhz

    This is very interesting... I was about to buy another 2x 1GB GeIL DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 to go with the identical stuff I've got. I knew I wouldn't be able to access all 4GB in XP, but I'm interested to know what this freezing problem is about...
