need help with RAM question

Hello.

I have recently installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on my hp notebook. use to be with vista. but i made a clean install.

my processer is Intel R pentium dual cpu t239 1.86, 1,87 ghz
this means i basically have 2 x 1.86 ghz. correct me if i am wrong

i also have 4 gb ram.

now here is the thing. when i had vista, my processer was rated at 4.9 ghz.

but now im not sure if that is the thing. i need major help and advise. also. should i stick to 64 bit or should i put 32 bit. i have both.

i want to know whats best for me. with 4gb ram and intel pentium dual cpu should i stick with 32 bit or 64 bit. i have read alot about 64 bit can handle utilize all the 4 gb ram and +. 32 bit can max handle 3.2 gb or 3.5 gb. so please help me.

would appreciate some help and advise

What is good for me, may not be good for you. But I would buy 64 . I think your computer would run very well.

Welcome to SevenForums vodcus,
You have x64 installed. What is it rated at? If you are having problems they could be driver related as that is the case with some that have switched to x64. If you have problems what are they? I say stick with X64 and try to make it work for you. Enjoy!

You shouldent mind the ratings. Also, you arent rated at 4.9 ghz, but 4.9 windows experience index.
Stick with 64-bit!

Part of the 4gb is being used by the system, but your numbers seem excessive. Off the top the only thing that I can think of is did you add ram, recently?


Check your perfomance monitor to see if any problems exist. Just type perfomance monitor in search.

to myzr7. thanks for reply. i actually dont have any problem. actually the os is runing just fine. but i just think its strange , when i open task manager to se my laptops perfomance, it says only 2.88 physical ram is available.

on my system information it says total memory installed 4 gb. total physical memory installed 4 gb.

but only around 2.88 is available. even though when i barely have anything runing on backround.

Where does it say that you have 2.88 gb available, in task manager or in the control panel -> system and security -> system?
The control panel number is quite ok, but if its in the ctrl panel, its really excessive.
