    @GeeSuth Have you tried to disable "Fast start-up" yet?

    You can also enable the "forced button/lid shut-down" option to show in Advanced Power Settings by changing the registry key I provided here below to see if that will work. Just note that when it is set to "On" any open apps with unsaved work will be automatically closed without a warning when the laptop is shutdown. Also ensure the power button/lid close action is set to shutdown.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    Hi there

    That's not quite true actually when you have a 64 bit CPU -- it can certainly be worthwhile installing a 64 bit OS even on 2GB RAM.

    Without going too much into OS Internals -- way beyond the scope of this post so a simple (slightly oversimplified but conceptually OK) explanation here.

    A 32 Bit OS on a 64 bit CPU has to basically do a LONGER instruction set to execute the 64 bit (The internal CPU -- NOT the OS) machine instruction set. (Approx 2 machine words to execute a 64 bit CPU instruction).

    The memory mapping also takes more work and space as you need a more complex algorithm to use for addressing -- e.g you can think of a 32 bit OS memory mapper as a telephone nr with the city (area) code say 213 and then the 4 digit number. The same 4 digit number can be used with different city codes say 419. These need to be remembered and stored so the right bit of memory is addressed.

    Now on a 64 bit CPU that still has to be converted into a Real RAM address . Note I'm talking here about the CPU not the OS !!!!!.

    A 64 bit OS uses RAM addresses directly -- no need for any of that conversion.

    All these are overheads so it's not surprising that on a 4GB RAM a 32 bit OS might only show 2.7GB useable whereas on the 64 bit OS you might get 3.8GB useable.

    Again depending on other hardware - PCI cards etc - these could reserve RAM too so it's not an exact science - but in general if your CPU is 64 bit go for a 64 bit OS even on less than 4GB RAM.

    On VM's (Virtual machines) it's also a no brainer - I have several W10 / W7 x-64 versions running with 1 or 2 GB RAM - no probs at all.

    This is what I'm running at the moment and at this moment I'm not sure its worth reverting back to x64 tbh. An SSD ensures it all flies along anyway. I think you gain in some areas and probably lose in others, much as Jimbo suggests.

    In the end.
    I'm surrender to 32 bit
    Because I'm not found the solution
    Maybe because my CPU is very old!!
    Special Thank you for all people trying help me!!
