Re: Problems With NVDA

32 bit Windows can't see more than something like 3.8 gb of ram.  For most people using 32bit Windows, they would never use that much RAM.  You can check how much RAM you are using and I believe there is an NVDA resource monitor add-on that allows this to be done easily. 
 
I doubt you use as much RAM as you have.
