|4 GB is 4096 MB! Not 4000 MB. In computer standards, if the amount of disk space or memory is in the thousands, 24 times the number of thousands is added to the total. For example:|
2 GB = 2048 MB, because:
24 MB's x 2 thousands of MB's = 2048 MB
I'm having a little trouble understanding what you typed, but you mean if there is only 3 GB in the computer, it boots fine? If this is the case, it might not support 4 GB. In general, 32-bit computers only perfectly support up to 3.5 GB of memory.
