NO. You need a 64bit OS. This has been answered many times on this forum.
From Best of Motherboards:
Why doesn't my Windows PC recognize the whole 4GB of memory I installed?
thank you for the help i'm sorry for posting the samething over again was just looking to confirm the answer
You could always create a RAM drive with that extra RAM and install your pagefile on it, giving you a substantial performance boost. The trick is to have persistence, so that the drive shows up as a regular drive every time you boot, and the easiest way to accomplish this is to use a program like SuperSpeed RamDisk9.
It costs something like $50, but I believe there is a trial version.
There is a tutorial on its use in the OCZ SSD forums. It is geared to SSD drive users but should prove helpful.
You'll find it a little more than half way down the page.
