Windows XP/Ram problem with XP OS


I have got a Dell optiplex 9010 core i7 with 20GB Ram , I want to install windows xp for better performance , I installed once but it couldn't recognize 20GB Ram , it shows 3GB or 4GB, Can you PLEASE HELP ME!!

Hi Farzad,

Are you using Windows XP 32-bit or 64-bit? You need the 64-bit version in order to see all 20GB. I also recommend going to Windows 7 64-bit instead because there is no more Windows XP support which can leave you open to security exploits.

I started using computers over 10 years ago and have grown to both love and hate it to say the least. I have studied computer programming and graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer science.
