Thank you all very much for your input.  

A Sun Blade 2500, originally equipped with 4Gb RAM, does not utilise 4Gb extra memory which has been installed

An extra CPU will have to be installed because this machine is only runnning 1CPU and as correctly pointed out by Lance Rochelle, Joseph Kabbabe, Andres Martinez, and Ric Anderson, the maximum amount of memory is 4Gb per CPU.
