No way.
A 32 bit computer simply doesn't have what it takes to support a 64 bit OS.

You only have 2 gig ram. Don't bother with 64 bit if you have to ask. Too much trouble unless it was pre-installed and you have 8 Gig or ram.

2GB of RAM is acceptable on a 64-bit OS, but you need a 64-bit processor to run a 64-bit OS. Because 32-bit can only use about 3.2GB RAM, a computer with 4GB is ideal for 64-bit systems. 8GB is excessive for the average user these days.

If I were to install a 64 bit OS, I doubt I'd consider a system with only 4G. There is no functional value. One would get some real improvement with 8 G ram. That way normal people who work with a few photoshop applications and maybe one video can use a few gigs pretty fast.

People wrongly state that somehow one can use the 4 gig in 64 bit and that is simply wrong even by the Microsoft pages and technet pages. In almost every case the 64 bit OS and every application will take up to twice the memory., Add to that you loose 16 and some 32 apps. Then you have to get all 64 bit drivers and fully supported 64 bit apps. Not worth it.
