    32 bit can only see 4GB Max. You'd need to install 64bit version.

    And the 1GB difference to the 4GB is probably the address space for your graphics. You absolutely need a 64bit system.

    ... so if you upgraded from a 32 bit OS, that means a clean install of the 64 bit OS, and reinstalling everything.

    You might then find some old hardware and driver may not work, or you need a 64 bit version of a program in place of a 32 bit. But 32 bit progs will almost certainly still work.. just don't be tempted to go for a 64 bit browser in general yet.

    That means you will need all the relevant licenses for commercial programs you install.

    Are you recommending he stay on the 32bit version ??
