Howto let my 32bit system support up to 4gb ram?? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Recently i just bought a new laptop which came with 32bit system.

    After i've upgraded the ram to 4GB, i only realize that for 32bit system, the highest spd can be detected is 3GB

    1. Isit anyway i can upgrade my system to 64bit?

    2. Or can i just purchase a new 64bit system with the cheaper price provided currently i've been using the 32bit system?

    Thx.. : )

    The system memory that is reported in the System Information dialog
    box in Windows Vista is less than you expect if 4 GB of RAM is installed
