ok im not very sure how to word this but here goes....
i have a toshiba satellite laptop l455d-s5976 with windows 7 home premium its only using 2.87 gb of 4 gb that i installed. it originally came with 2 gb. it uses a AMD sempron SI 42 2.10 ghz processor
i like to edit video and i thought getting more ram would help speed it up but i see that its not even using 3 gb of the 4...
is there anyway to make it use more like 3 or so? because i read that i would have to get a 64 bit OS to use all the 4 gb.
is there a way around this?
You can also use GPU-Z, or HWInfo, to see where the majority of the system memory is being allocated. The only downside is your processor is also not built for doing alot of video editing but you should be able to do some.
If you can afford it, I would definitely go for Win7 x64 due to being able to use all 4Gb of the memory installed and not being limited.
