    if you could, could you download and run the following:

    http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe

    that will let us know what type of machine you have there. If it's a 32-bit OS, 6 gigs is useless as the OS will only see ~3.75 or so.

    thanks,

    I'm betting it came with Windows 7(64-bit). I'm not seeing many new laptops anymore that come with 32-bit.

    What's the complete model number that's on the sticker?
