3GB or 4GB of RAM will not boot on my P5n-32 SLI Deluxe Motherboard running Windows XP Home SP2. Is there a work around for this or am I just capped at 2GB RAM? I have four 1GB ram sticks btw.

Is it all the same brand, bought at the same time? Same amount of chips on the module?
Some brands don't play together well
