Vista SP1

So I updated my Vista rig to SP1. Guess what happened afterwards..

Vista

Take a close look at the RAM….

… apparently Vista SP1 gives me 900% more RAM. Too bad it’s not 180GB, or I’d be able to say, “It’s over 9000%!”

Apart from that, nothing major I feel from the SP1 upgrade, probably because I don’t use it as my main.

    I’m hearing loads of SP1 users are having problems… but you got an upgrade.

    Wow, computer illiterates can actually “DOWNLOAD MORE RAM.”

    It doesn’t matter how much more RAM you have above 4GB since your OS is still 32bits, which can only access at most 4GB anyway.

    I thought it was only 3 gB that they could recognize.

    About the RAM issue, with a 32bit operating system, the operating system itself will only be able to recognize up to 4 gigabytes of ram. However, due to the fact your I/O panel (back where you plug the mouse, keyboard, USBs, etc) occupies some RAM already, you will only at best, get about 3.2gbs to show.

    Jumping up to the 64bit opearing system, the max is like 18,000gbs or something. (That’s probably completely off but, thats the gist of it).

    However, if you look under your BIOs, your motherboard can recognize alot more then just 4 gigabytes of RAM :)
