    Dont even bother with newegg, go to crucial.com and scan your system, it will then tell you what they sell in combo packs that are compatible...
    Yup that's another good choice too .......either one....that way you should get the right ones. :)

    After reading about that memory you bought, they offer FREE tech support for any memory you buy from them. I would give them a call tomorrow and ask them about the problems you are having. Weather you need a Matched Pair or just but one more like you already have. Also tell them your model of your computer....just to make sure you got the right one. Before buying another one.

    Go to this link and choose the option of letting it scan your computer and choose the memory you should get for your computer. Then post the results. Choose "System Scanner "

    On your problem with not being able to use the full 4GB you have. Here is a clip I found from another member with same problem. This is how they explained it to this user. Yours is very similar ...most likely its your older motherboard. This may explain it better for you.

    "As stormy13 has mentioned there is no solution to your problem with that motherboard. A 64 bit OS does permit access to the full 4 GB RAM but only if the motherboard supports it, which yours does not. This is not uncommon with older boards.

    32 bit and 64 bit systems face the same issue with accessing the full 4 GB RAM. It is just that a 64 bit OS has a potential solution. A 32 bit OS has a 4 GB physical address space but this must be shared by RAM and memory mapped hardware which must have priority. RAM and this hardware cannot share the same addresses so a portion of RAM (labeled as Hardware Reserved) will be inaccessible. A 64 bit OS supports remapping of the conflicting RAM to higher addresses where it can then be accessed. But this remapping must be done in the BIOS, which the Intel 82945G motherboard cannot do. Many older boards do not support this."
