Lenovo T61 only sees 3 G RAM

Just received my new Lenovo T61 w Intel Core Duo T7500 @2.2GHZ notebook and was dissappointed to see that only 3G RAM is accessible by my Operating System (Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit) - although the BIOS correctly sees the 4G that I installed.

Seems others have had the same issue.  Is it true that insalling a 64 bit Vista OS will solve my problem?

Will my computer run a 64 bit OS?

As you've noted, it's normal to see less than 4GB with a 32-bit OS.

As for your other questions:  Yes, installing Vista x64 will allow your system to "see" all 4GB ...

... and Yes, the T7500 will run Vista x64 with no problem.
