From here, it appears that your model of Dell Inspiron comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

And just to clarify a little, 32-bit OS do support 4GB of RAM too :) if it's over 4GB then it is definitely 64-bit.

Have a good day!

If you use the Dell support page and your service tag...the decision-making is done for you by Dell.
