Can a 32 bit have more than 4GB RAM?

Hello,
I have a HP G60 3GB RAM and was wondering if it would be possible to install 6GB RAM or more without causing damage to my laptop. Can anybody please help me...

  1. A 32 bit (x86) Operating system will not support more than 3GB or RAM. Sorry :(
  2. The models I looked at few HP G60-xxxxx all listed 2GB/slot max so even with a 64-bit OS upgrade won't help. Addressing 2^32 = 4,294,967,295 bits limit ~4GB and change.

    OS RAM support -> http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366778(v=vs.85).aspx

    Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 (non-ECC)
    Maximum Memory: 4GB
    Slots: 2
    Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-6400 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.*
