This says that you can have up to 16 gigs of installed memory. but again with what squirrelnmoose told you....that you maybe able to install the upgrade but the operating system might not allow you to use it....

What you have is the 32 bit version of Windows XP home (home does not have a 64 bit version)
32bit Windows XP will only allow 3 gigs (some says 4) but I have never been able to get it to use more than 3 gigs.
