  1. I have an older Toshiba laptop,P205-S7806. I want to upgrade the memory but was told it came with 2gb and that's all it can hold,it is a 32bit. I am not computer savvy by no means so please any help,make it simple. I was told I could change it from the 32bit to 64bit,is this really easy and then can I use more memory..thanks for any help you give me..

    The only way you'd be able to change from 32bit to 64bit would be switching operating systems. For instance, If you're running Windows 7 32bit you will need to upgrade to Windows 7 64bit to raise the RAM limit. Now, depending on what you're doing with this machine. It may not be worth it to change from 32bit to 64bit. 2GB should serve you fine if you're just doing general computing tasks.
