    Default Help Please... to boot with 4GB OCZ (2x2GB).

    Presently have the set-up shown below on a P35DS4 (F2) running XP 32 bit + BFG 8800GTS G.P.U.:

    I'm running Matrox THTG and wanted to increase Memory, so I picked up some OCZ Reaper (2x2GB) PC2 8500 on sale but system won't boot with the current settings, as below. (I do realize that my OS won't recognize all 4 GB)

    Gigabyte said RAM is compatible with this board and to try and boot with one stick, then apply proper settings ???

    Thought it might be a good idea to have some "proper settings" first.... but he didn't suggest any.

    If anyone could help with "proper settings" to get me started... I would really appreciate it !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks in advance !!! Rick
