How to Use 32bit-Rampatch-v1.0 to Enable Full RAM Support on Windows 7 32-bit
If you have a Windows 7 32-bit system with 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM, you may have noticed that your system does not use the full amount of memory. This is because Windows 7 32-bit has a limitation of addressing only up to 3.25 GB of RAM. However, there is a way to bypass this limitation and enable your system to use the full RAM capacity. This can improve your system performance and stability, especially if you run memory-intensive applications or games.
The solution is to use a patch called 32bit-Rampatch-v1.0, which was released in 2011 by an anonymous developer. This patch modifies the Windows kernel to allow it to access more than 4 GB of RAM on a 32-bit system. The patch is compatible with Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and all editions of Windows 7 32-bit.
In this article, we will show you how to download and apply the patch to your Windows 7 32-bit system. Please note that this patch is not officially supported by Microsoft and may cause some compatibility issues with some drivers or programs. Use it at your own risk and make sure you backup your important data before proceeding.
Step 1: Download the Patch
You can download the patch from this link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/9z6xq9y6c5n9z9d/32bit_Rampatch_v1.0.zip/file. The file size is about 3 MB and it contains two files: rampatch.exe and readme.txt. Save the file to a location where you can easily find it later.
Step 2: Run the Patch
Before you run the patch, make sure you close all your running programs and disable your antivirus software temporarily. Then, right-click on the rampatch.exe file and select \"Run as administrator\". You will see a command prompt window with some instructions. Press any key to continue.
The patch will scan your system and check if it is compatible with the patch. If it is compatible, it will ask you if you want to apply the patch. Type \"Y\" and press Enter to confirm. The patch will then backup your original kernel file and replace it with the modified one. It will also create a registry entry to enable PAE (Physical Address Extension), which is a feature that allows the system to access more than 4 GB of RAM.
When the patching process is complete, you will see a message saying \"Patch applied successfully\". Press any key to exit the command prompt window.
Step 3: Restart Your System
After applying the patch, you need to restart your system for the changes to take effect. When your system boots up, you should see that your system recognizes and uses the full amount of RAM installed on your system. You can check this by right-clicking on \"My Computer\" and selecting \"Properties\". You should see something like this:
