Memory upgrades from Crucial.com - Determine My Memory Needs
"using a 64-bit OS doesn't allow you to get more ram, it allows you to use more ram - " yeh sorry I mean get more ram as in buy more ram and install it .
"like, it's not going to change something to force your pc be able to use 12gigs of ram if it doesn't say it supports that much, but if your pc does support 12gigs of ram, it would allow you to use it."
so your saying it will only read the ram it CAN use and use it
"now, if it says your laptop supports 4gigs max, then that's the max. it could be a hardware limitation, as in the mobo cannot supprot anymore than that."
Im no newb( just to this forum )so I know for a fact machines are designed to be upgraded along with OS's ---so its probably just saying theres a limit of ram for my current 32 bit OS - you reckon ?
Also its probably not worth bothering for 120 - 160 quid I may aswell save like a squirrel before a nut famine and buy a new machine what do you reckon muff man
