32bit windows showing 4GB Tags: Memory Windows Vista Last response: April 19, 2008 1:01 AM in Memory Share captnred April 19, 2008 12:10:07 AM Just a question of curiosity. I just installed vista sp1 and now it shows 4GB in system info. Will it use it all or was it just a fix to recognize it?

It is just for your viewing pleasure dagger April 19, 2008 12:54:28 AM Lol, it's a trick by Microsoft. Their SP1 shows it, but the 32bit OS still can't use the full 4gb. It just can't be done. There were earlier threads about this, when SP1 first came out. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
