- Run the Intel Chipset Information Utility to determine what chipset you have. The tool can be downloaded from here: Download Intel® Chipset Identification Utility.
- It means it cannot use more than this amount of memory. It may not run properly (may not POST or boot) if more memory that supported is installed.
Hope this helps,
THANK YOU!!!!!!!! It worked! I don’t know how I didn’t stumble upon this utility in all of my internet searching to figure this out. Can’t thank you enough. As it turns out, I do NOT have the GL40 chipset. The utility says that I actually have the Intel Mobile GL45 Chipset – which, as it happens, is not limited to only 4GB. So, I can go ahead and upgrade my memory to 8GB! Woo hoo!
