Vista annoying memory problem

hi guys.
i am trying to play games with steam on my vista pc. whenever i get about a level into a game, it becomes minimized and vista says "low on physical memory." this is bull****. i have 32 bit vista, with 4 gb of ram installed. the system is only using 2.4 GB, ans it has 3.1GB avaliable. even better, i cant return to my game because it crashes when the warning comes out. does anyone know how to shut this warning off?

  1. As you have 32bit version, you should understand that any 32bit version only supports 3.2GB as available and 3GB as usable.

    Use 64bit version of OS to avail the functionality of 4GB RAM.

    When u play, close all the programs, especially the browser.

    And yes, u need x64bit version to address more RAM.
