i have edge 11 i3-380UM with 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 memory, and XP SP 2 as the OS.
After i installed new RAM which has the same spec on the empty slot, windows couldn't recognize it, but BIOS did.

Hi and welcome to the forum!
You need 64-bit OS to utilize 4GB RAM, XP wouldn't recognize more than 3GB.
Hope this helps.

sorry for waking up this thread again, but are you suggesting that you installed 2x2GB PC3-10600 memory in your Edge.
Even though BIOS reports 4GB, the OS only can *use* 2GB (1.75GB) in the first slot? If this is the case, you are not alone, and it has, of course, nothing to do with 32 bits at all.
