now i had a problem with my computer not booting up and so i took my cpu to a pro shop to get fix. Now he calls me days later say my ram wasn't compatible so i had four sticks, he took out two so i brought new ram and the computer started to do the same thing. so then it hit me why is it that these two are the only ones working so i took those two out and put two others in the other two slots dont work. so i leave one on one side and put one back where it came from it comes on wow right...so i got to look at the ram and its only recognizing one stick of ram saying its a 1g ram so i put both of them back now it says i have 2 gbs i need to figure this out because sims 3 takes alot of memory.

No offense, but I feel as if people would respond more if they understood your situation better...

By the way, 32-bit OS will not support 4GB of RAM, but usually around 3GB at most.
