How much memory is in it now? Do you have Aero enabled?

i have 1.5gb of RAM but aero style doesn`t work I ain`t got any areo style and I think it is because it haves only 1.5gb and it needs 2gb as I seen from microsoft site

<2GB of RAM of vista is a choke, and I'm willing to bet that you've got some programs running in the background you don't need. Try using the msconfig utility to reduce your memory usage on startup.

Here's a short intro:

The only real difference between Vista x64 and x86 is x64 can address lots more memory. There are some driver/compatibility issues with x64, but they're not that great. Any notebook that can run x86 can run x64. I recommend x64 to anyone, simple because it's more advanced and allows you to have more memory at your fingers in the future.
