you cant - a 32bit operating system can only see 4GB and some of that needs to be reserved for internal use of the PC - so you typically only see 3GB or just over

whats the reading in the bios - that should be 4GB
but under windows will report approx 3GB

the only way to see more memory is to use a 64bit operating system
also as far as 32bit XP is concerned there would be no real advantage to average use going from 3-4gb anyway

A 32 Bit OS can only see up to 3.75GB of RAM. No games and few apps can utilize over 3GB of RAM and 2GB is commonly enough for XP.
Windows 7 is a worthwhile OS upgrade but not worth the $100 just to see another 1GB of RAM.

Using 4GB on the 32Bit OS is not going to slow anything down.
