how to increase "Maximum possible array" in Matlab?

I constantly meet the out of memory problem, and I run my code in two computers and get the conclusion that this problem can be fixed through increasing the "Maximum possible array"?

Can anyone give me a suggestion about how to do this?

Below is the info. for my computer:
>> memory
Maximum possible array: 748 MB (7.847e+008 bytes) *
Memory available for all arrays: 1532 MB (1.607e+009 bytes) **
Memory used by MATLAB: 246 MB (2.575e+008 bytes)
Physical Memory (RAM): 3543 MB (3.715e+009 bytes)

I found some online helps but I am always directed to Microsoft webpage helper which is not efficient at all, can anyone gives me a hint in how to do it in Matlab since I think the Physical Memory is enough, but the "Maximum possible array" is clearly the problem.

Thanks a lot in advance,

It seems that you are working under 32 bits operating system. Under 64 bit version of OS available memory will increase significantly.

Hi Valeriy,

I have 32bit on both computers but one works with low speed the other doesn't work because of out of memory.
So I am looking for a way to increase the memory for Matlab.

Buy more memory for the machine w/ the shortage...
