Memory upgradation in Compaq proliant ML350 G3 server

i upgrade memory of my ML350 G3 server with 1 GB to 7 GB. but it shows only 3.75 GB memory in OS.

before upgradation the server was with 1 GB single module. it have 3 more additional memory slots. i upgrade this 3 slots with 2GB *3. after upgradation during POST it counts 7 GB memory, but in windows 2003 server there it shows only 3.75 GB. can anyone tell is anything we need to do in OS for taking full memory.

Hi,

Are you using Windows 2003 Standard by any chance?
Windows 2003 Standard is a 32bit OS.
32bit OS's can only see / use just under 4GB RAM.

As far as I can remember Windows 2003 Enterprise supports upto 8GB...

You can made change in windows boot.ini command line and type PAE(physical adress extension) but you cannot see more than 4 GB i Win Server 2003 st ed
