Enabling More Than 4GB RAM on Windows 7 32-bit

In this tutorial , I’ll be guiding you on how to enable 4GB of RAM on Windows 7 32-bit.  This is handy especially if you are planning to use your old Windows 32-bit without the hassle of going through reformatting and re installing Windows 7 64-bit as there is no way to upgrade from 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS. Before we start , be sure to backup your system and you also would also need to download the patch here . If you prefer to do it for yourself , scroll down and read
DISCLAIMER : Bear in mind that we are going to change our system here. For instance you may enter Twlight Realm and you may be a fan of Justin Bieber afterwards. I am not held responsible if such incident occurs. So be sure to backup your system before attempting to do so.

Now here comes the tricky part. You gotta do this trick. Uninstall both U1010 Button driver and its utility
Then install U2010 Button Driver , it will just update the device and say it would work. Now install the utility. Your buttons should work however , it will moan about auto rotation saying it can’t find suitable resolution.
