that all depends on the mother board you have. I would say if you have four slots with 4gig max then it would be 1gig per slot max and if 2 slots then.......well i guess it would have to be 2 x 2gig. it really depends on the max ram …

Max memory for your mobo is 4gig max meaning 1gig max for each slot

sittas87 is right. 1 gig max per slot. besides it is a lot faster to run 4 1G sticks then it is to run 2 2G stick

It is faster, and safer if one of the sticks breaks down !

Yeah, I kinda figgured that. I have a problem with booting up when I have memory in slots 3 and 4...an intermittent problem that has gotten worse over time. I guess I can just stick with 2 gigs of ram....THANKS EVERYONE

check if your slots is dual channel

if you don't know how to tell they should be color coded. and they should alternate for example mine are yellow, blue, yellow, blue

thats right,colors suggest pairs
