Hi devesh,

Have a quick look at the following link

A Closer Look at Windows Vista, Part III: 32-Bit vs. 64-Bit Windows - Developer Zone - National Instruments

They have tried to explain from the point of view of Computer Architecture.May be of some help to you. If any issues, feel free to ask. 😀

It's all depends the bit representing memory address. for example Pentium micro processor is 32 bit microprocessor( it can represent in memory in 32 bit pointer ). but we use in DOS , that is only 16 bit operating system. so this operating system can only find 65536 address remaining can not find.
