X61s Bios shows 4 gig memory, System Prefs shows only 3....

I've got an X61s, and I just installed two 2 gig SODIMMs of PC2-5300 667 MHz memory..... The Bios shows 4 gig installed, but when I use the System function in the Control Panel, it only shows 3 Gig.... Any clue what's up?

 

Thanks in advance....

Yes. You're using a 32-bit version of XP or Vista, which can only use up to about 3GB max. Install a 64-bit version if you want to use all 4GB.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
