    I have a Toshiba Windows Vista 32 bit and would like install 4GB's of RAM but the limiting factor seems to be the memory addressing capability of the processor.
    Is there any way to get around this?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Do you mean a Toshiba laptop? All vendors set limits on the max amount of RAM one can install.....and NO, there's no way around that.

    The CPU limit is a hardware limit, so no. Plus you have a 32bit OS which also can only address 4GB but will usually show up as 3-3.3GB depending on hardware
