Maximizing the 32-bit 4GB RAM Limit

If you have a 32-bit system with 4GB installed, you can reduce the amount of RAM that gets wasted and make some more of it available by opening the BIOS configuration and reducing the AGP aperture setting to the minimum amount (e.g., 4MB).

Note: this may affect 3D graphics performance, so it is best for systems which don’t do 3D gaming or systems with video-cards that have a lot of video memory.
