    Yep. YES I searched, nothing.

    I just bought 4 gigs of ram for my macbook today and of course it works fine on my OS X partition but on my windows partition reads 2.75. I've heard people talk about how 32-bit OS's have support up to 4 gigs of ram and that seeing 3.75 gb is normal but this is just ridiculous.

    Any help? I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR A 64-BIT OS.

    You need a 64-bit OS. There are no tricks to get around the restriction.
