Hi,

Windows 7 32-bit can only use ~3GB RAM, to have access to the rest you need to install Windows 7 64-bit. You cannot upgrade from 32 to 64-bit, you must perform a clean install for that.

See here:

Sounds like you downloaded the wrong file by mistake or the service had them mis-marked. You definitely want the 64 bit version without hesitation !

My understanding is your computer came with 64 bit Windows Home Premium.
