General problems with OS + RAM

Recommended Posts

Im using Win XP 32 bit, which limits the RAM you have to 3-3.5gm

I have currently 5.5GB (planning on getting to 8)

2x 2gb,

1x 1gb

1x 512mb

anyone know how i can solve this, i have a Pentium D 3.4Ghz processor

I should be able to run a 64bit OS,

anyone have any suggestions, i dont have much money, just got a new PSU and Graphics card and RAM, so relatively broke now

Upgrade to Windows XP 64bit addition then. The 32bit OS is the problem. You may also have to upgrade your BIOS.

how do i get xp 64bit?

You buy it the same way you would buy windows XP 32bit. Check newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=50001149%2040000368&Manufactory=1149&SubCategory=368&SpeTabStoreType=0

If your gonna build your new PC after October, then I'd just wait and buy windows 7 when it comes out (October or November is the projected release date). Better yet just download the free release version they have on the web site (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/dd353205.aspx) and use that until the official comes out or until the RC expires in 2010. I believe the upgrade is gonna be like $80 or something.

It is annoying i git this computer in 2005 just before Duel core was introduced,

It is a pentium D, and has 2 processors yet isn't considered duel core

It should be, it's listed as having 2 cores on the Intel site. I'm guessing windows wasn't installed correctly so it's not fully recognizing the second core or your motherboard doesn't support the processor's dual cores.
