    I just upped the memory on my DAW running XP Pro from 1 GB to 3 GB. Are there any memory tweaks that i need to make or should make to the system to utilize all of it?

    none...enjoy the ram that you will never truly utilize unless it's a dual CPU system.....

    Windows XP pro (32bit) doesnt recognize more than around 3.1gigs when using a 256mb video card or about 3.7gigs of mem if you use a vid card with less than 256mb of ram... You still have access up to 4gigs with page mem.

    How much ram does it say you have in sys properties/general tab?

    Well it shows up as 3 GB and I don't think i will have trouble using all of it with EW's software.

    OK well i recall hearing aobut some memory tweak that allow you to use more than the 2 GB available for programs.

    Well looks like i found something, I'll try it when i get home.
    I guess you add the following to your boot.ini

    and can be adjusted between 2048-3072 if followed by this
