HP Pavillion A1610n Memory Upgrade Problems

Ok, here is my problem:


I own an HP a1610n and recently purchased four 1 gig strips of PNY DDR2 PC2-5300 memory to fill the four available memory slots in my motherboard (I removed the old two 512mb chips).  When I turned on the computer, windows refused to boot up at all and asked if I wanted to go into safe mode, which it would not even enter.  I think I may need to change something in my bios with the memory config., but I am not that clever and do not know how. I am running Windows Media Center XP and know that I can only run 3.5 gig since it is a 32-bit operating system. 


Any ideas???
