This computer's (Gateway FX4710-UB003A )(sold on bestbuy.com)specs are pretty good but it says it has 6gb of RAM my question is though which version of vista is it running 64 bit or 32bit because if 32 it wont even recognize the other 3gb or RAM the computer holds. And another question about the Graphics Card Ive heard of the NVIDIA 9800GTX and GX2 But not the 9800 GT is there a big difference in performance?

Re: Vista...is it a 32 bit version or 64 bit.
I dont' work for bestbuy, so i can't tell what the hardware inside this pc is, only looking inside the pc or the hardware manuals a technician can work.
However, to know what kind of windows is installed, you don't need to be an expert, Windows XP 32 bits only shows the logo( WINDOWS XP ), unlike Windows XP 64 bits, this appears as:
( WINDOWS XP X64 ) when windows is starting.
Also you can go to START - CONTROL PANEL - double click on SYSTEM, there you will see some of your system specs.

Lines on the monitor is a signal that the monitor might be bad or the video card is going bad.
Try another monitor on the computer. If you don't have one borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the other monitor works without showing the lines, then your original monitor is bad. If the other monitors shows lines just like your original monitor then the video card is going bad.
When does this code 43 pop up? Does it give you any error message with the code?
I looked it up and i think it has to do with a usb device.
If you want to restore windows to when it was new, then go to start button, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore, check choose a different restore point, next, now, check show all restore points.
See if the oldest restore point is good enough, it you are ok with that one then left click on it to highlight it then click next and finish.
I was not able to find specific information for that computer but replacing memory on any desktop computer is usually pretty straight forward. You would unplug from power, remove the screws for the cover, and locate the slots that hold the memory chips and add the memory. It might be a case that all of your memory slots are full and you'll need to remove some of the memory first. You could replace them with larger capacity chips.
