I currently have 2-1gig Corsair sticks of RAM...I have 4 slots however. I have both sticks in A2 and B2 slots which are supposed to be dual channel. Can I still use the A1 and B1 slots to add more RAM?? I guess I dont understand how this works.

Thank You

You should be able to. Normally dual channel motherboards have the memory slots color coded and/or it's explained in the manual.

We could provide a better answer if we knew what motherboard you're using.

It's on pages 2-11 and 2-12 of the users manual.

The way I read it, you should be using A1 and B1 (yellow) now and additional sticks would be added to A2 and B2 (black).

If your XP is 32bit, you'll see way less than 4Gb of memory in Windows; probably around 3-3.25Gb.
