SIW program

So I loaded the System Info for Windows, and I was browsing through the tabs and opened Memory and it that the max memory for my laptop was 8 GB's, but I think I read some where that Hp said it was only use up to 4 GB's, so before I go out and buy more ram for my PC how do I know that the software is not corrrect ???

If your computer is cabible of running 64 bit 8 gigs will come in handy. If 32 dont bother the computer can only access 3.3 of 4gigs. to verify which go here GRC*|*SecurAble: Determine Processor Security Features*|** and dl the free utility. it will tell you.

Hope this helps

Hey this software gives false info about memory slots, capacity and speed. My laptop supports 4 GB but it shows just 2 GB.

A little off topic, but are you 64bit guys truly experiencing the benefit of the 64bit processor? Or, on some days, you feel like going back to 32bit? And why? Anyone running 32bit os on 64bit proc, and what are your experiences with that setup?

i installed 64bit os for the 1st time. i can see an improvent in terms of file copying, stability, performance and better utilization of resources. go for 64 bit, you wont regret it.
