Windows XP doesn’t show more than 3.25GB RAM

I am a regular reader of Digit magazine and I like it a lot. It’s full of stuff needed in daily routine. Keep the great work. The problem I am facing is that my system has 4GB RAM installed the Windows XP (under system properties) shows only 3.25GB available. Why is this so? The BIOS shows up 4GB RAM, but not XP.

DIGIT ANSWERS: This is a limitation faced by 32-bit operating systems. Install a 64-bit version of Windows XP or Vista and you will be able to use the entire 4 GB.
