4GB memory for Vista Home Premium 32bit Laptop

Is it worth upgrading my Acer Laptop from 2GB to 4GB with it having Vista Home Premium 32bit o/s on it.

I think I read somewhere that it would only use 3GB unless I upgrade to Vista Ultimate.

Has anyone tried it with their laptop ?

No it's not worth it, unless you do a lot of photoshopping and film … No it's not worth it, unless you do a lot of photoshopping and film editing and the like. Also it's not Vista ultimate that can use 4GB. 32bit operating systems can only use about 3.3GB of ram, its a restriction of 32bit and vista ultimate will not change this.



Ok thanks, that saved me a bit money then

all drivers, for your model are ]here

hi been here and have drivers but not bluetooth please can you help rep added

The obvious question, does it definitely have bluetooth? Due to the variety in Acer models offered the same chassis will be used for models both with and without bluetooth, the latter will then stiill have bluetooth symbols/switches. I've seen people asking a few times how to get their bluetooth working on an Acer laptop when it's not there.
