Might my Acer laptop be limited to 2GB RAM?

I have an older run of the mill Acer Aspire 4720Z laptop which is about 2 years old and came with 1 GB of PC-5300 RAM.

"According to what I can find your laptop model, it only supports 2GB or RAM. That is what is listed on the Acer Support Page and the Crucial Memory Selector. Also going to Intel's specs for the laptop chipset, the GL960, lists 2GB max of RAM as well. So it looks like that's what the issue is.

I'm surprised though that the computer recognizes all the RAM and then crashes Windows rather than just ignoring the extra RAM."
