memory and readyboost
Just 2 questions. 1.I have 4 Gb of RAM installed but Vista only recognizes
3Gb of it since its the 32-bit version. Is there any way I could upgrade to a
64-bit version? 2. I've got ReadyBoost running from a 2Gb flashdrive.
Everytime I boot the computer an error nessage appears stating a "disk I/o
error" it says i should replace the disk and hit any key. All I have to do is
just hit a key and it ignores the error, but it is kind of annoying. Any
advice on how to get ReadyBoost working better?

No, no upgrade is possible. You would have to clean install.

What applications do you run that make you think that more than 3GB
would improve your performance? Most people would see no difference.

Sorry, I don't know and can't help with that, other than to suggest
that with 3GB of RAM, my guess is that Readyboost does nothing for
you.

Maybe something in the BIOS? Mine has an option to boot from USB devices,
and mine flatly refuses to boot to vista if my flash drive is connected, it
only contains documents and photos, stuff like that. I have to disable this
option in the BIOS.

Can't think of a sig at the moment.
