    Hello,

    We recently setup a server with 4 gigs of RAM and installed Fedora core 7 32-bit version in it. After installing the OS, I have found that Fedora is able to detect only 2 GB and not 4 GB of RAM. I installed the kernel-PAE and kernel-PAE-devel modules and restart the server and made sure that the the OS with the PAE switch starts at boot time. However, the OS still does not detect the 4 GB RAM. Any idea what else can be done apart from installing the 64-bit OS in the system?

    If its only detecting 2GB of ram instead of 3.x GB then theres something wrong with the motherboard or sticks of ram. Its not the OS.

    Have you looked to see how much memory is detected in the BIOS/at startup of the machine?

    The Motherboard detected the RAM properly. I reinstalled the OS and replaced it with a 64 bit version and it worked. The new OS detects 4 GB RAM. Thanks everybody for your help.
