you can't have more than 3.25 gs of ram on 32 bit. if your system sees only 2 than you need to make sure your ram is 100% connected. 64-bit allows more to be used

If I understand the question as supporting dual channel memory, that's a function of your hardware, not Windows...

If the question is can I run Win 7 32 with 4gig memory the answer is yes although Windows will only see 3.25gig, but that's not a problem.

Your system specs say 2 gig ram so I'm assuming you are upgrading to 4. Enjoy

Dual channel (2 channel ) will work yes, but your OS (x86/32bit) will be limited to 3.xGB

x depends on different variables such as on-board graphics and motherboard settings.

Adding RAM will make your system perform a significant amount better.

3 sticks of 2G RAM will not run in dual channel. they must be equal pairs.
DDR3 will as I understand it, cause it is tri-channel.

Also,,, 6G of ram is wasted on a 32bit OS. Or in this case,,, adding a 2G stick to the 4G you have will not do you any good except use a slot on the board and waste your money, it will be a useless addition.
