    How can I determine if my CPU supports PAE?

    Just curious, and wondering...
    Firstly, how can I check if my CPU supports PAE also, how do I activate or enable it.
    Sorry for posting one out of topic question !

    Thanks in advance

    The gui app "Sysinfo" shows cpu flags including PAE (if applicable).

    More info on PAE here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension
