Check out whether the board is able to support the 4GB of Ram. It could be that the Motherboard is not able to support well. So in order to check out for the same I would suggest you to check for the compatibility by checking out on developers site. You can also get the updated pack of the BIOS and get it installed. Make the installation of the same by flashing it and process as required. It will be better.
