Someone removed my email for me, I wasn't aware it was a rule but sometimes it is because of the phishin that goes on. None of which affects me as not much personal info is ever attached and I'm securely well protected
Your mother board specs say 4GB max for RAM
This may be due to the 32bit OS, check with other uses or the manufacturer. I have seen this limit listed and then other users report they are using more with no problems.
Crucial informed me that my limitation is 2x2 gigs. Asus hasn't an update yet that I know of.. then again maybe some people have had luck with this mobo and 2x4's but I've yet to see them.
Try running the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
, it will tell you if there will be any system, program, or devices issues before you start the installation.
I probably overloaded the advisor the first time I ran it when I had all my drives hooked up. I've sifted out what I really need to use and what I don't and things seems to be good but I would like to get to the 64 bit now that I have read more and understand a bit more. A few myths I wondered about are clear.
When moving from 32bit OS to a 64bit OS you must use a Clean/Custom install. You can not use the upgrade install.
Any program that runs in Vista will run in Windows 7. There is XP and Vista compatibility modes.
32bit programs will run fine in the 64bit OS, it has two 'Program' folders, 'Program files' for 64bit programs and 'Program Files (x86)' for the 32bit programs.
With never using a 64 bit OS first hand I wasn't aware that there was 2 program folders. I'll update my system specs, but having 2 machines I tend to swap cards back and forth for certain games.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
