Portege R700 - upgrade Windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit and memory question

I recently bought Portge R700 and am disappointed by the memory. I have a license of Windows 7 64-bit edition: what problems can arise if I update? Once installed, I can then use 8 MB of RAM.

Moreover, I found the reagrding misleading Web site the option of using the 8 MB of RAM with the32-bit OS. I have 4Mb installed, years to see that only 2.86 MB is usable.

I get "out of memory" messages and would like to know how to allocate more memory to live for video.

Tom's right. If you want to use the 64-bit operating system, you must do clean install operating system. All drivers and tools specific to Toshiba and utilities must be installed Additionally one by one.
If you need assistance with installing Win7 let us know.

I put t know for what purposes do you use your laptop and what applications are important for your daily work, but, in general, I don t think you will have problems using 64 bit OS. Please keep in mind that all additional software is 64-bit capable and everything will be OK.

As far as I know laptop user doesn't have the influence of the use of video memory and it runs automatically. It is unclear to me that you can change these settings and set how much RAM can be used for video operations.

Anyway, Portege R700 is nice for laptop with sufficient power for daily use and also for use with standard applications. I don t think you ve bought this laptop for games.

    It happens regularly after using my laptop for a while (1 hour more?) that Windows Explorer is no longer refreshes one of its windows. EG., delete a file and it is always displayed and disappears only after pressing the refresh (F5) button.

    Anyone who has had this experience, knows the problem, may suggest a solution (with the exception of maintenance by pressing F5 and possibly restart in frustration, which helps during some time)?

    It's very strange. I tested it on my Win7 64 bit-Satellite P500. I ve open two windows explore with in the same place, so I got the same content in both entities. When I delete a file or folder in the left window the right showed immediately that certain document has disappeared.

    I m really surprised that describes the problem may occur.
    Are you using the original OS that you got with your laptop?

  • Upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit and want to be able to access data files

    I have a question about upgrading to a 64-bit Windows 7 installation.

    I am currently using windows 7 32 bit and want to upgrade to 64 - bit. I use a second hard drive internal for the backup, and I was wondering, if I have my files on the second backup drive and upgrade the primary drive to 64-bit, it will still be able to recognize and read the secondary drive, because how the files were written it on a 32 bit OS?
    I wanted to just make sure before you move forward.

    The installation does not affect that the system drive, but you should backup or disconnect the drive or you accidentally select the wrong drive during installation.

    You will need to do a clean install, there is no place on the way to upgrade Windows 7 32 bit to 64 bit.

    Using the disk of 64-bit Windows 7, install Windows 7 Windows Easy Transfer Utility from the DVD (to find it, simply navigate to x:\support\migwiz, "x:" is the name of your hard drive. (In this case, you will see a collection of files, the important"that you must search for and double-click is 'migsetup'.) run it and create a DAMP (Windows Easy Transfer file), if you have an external hard drive, you can access it later when you perform a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit disk so you can stored there.

    Once you have done this, just do a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit disc. In Windows 7 64 bit disk, start Windows Easy Transfer, follow the wizard screen, tap on which is stored the WET file (external hard drive) and it will restore your personal files and settings. Reinstall the applications needed.

  • Install Windows 7 64 bit and Vista 32 bit on the same drive

    I have Vista 32 bit installed on my laptop. Media recovery is on a recovery partition, I have no recovery DVD such as $85 for something that should be included with my expensive laptop anyway, it is a bit much

    I have a drive to upgrade Windows 7 from my laptop manufacturer that allows me to each upgrade or to start from scratch.

    I want to install Windows 7 64 bit on a separate partition for the installation of my 32-bit Vista, but when I boot on the DVD there is no option to select the 32 or 64 bit, it only allows me to install the 32-bit version. I have partitions installed correctly then they arnt the problem. If I try to boot from the recovery partition to install Vista 64 bit on a separate partition, to upgreade can leave, he simply don't say so, it doesn't allow the recovery or replacement of my existing Vista installation. Also, often when I boot to recovery mode, by organizing 0 start up, he simply waits some time and the Vista of boots in any case.

    How should I do to dual boot Windows 7 64 bit and Vista 32-bit, as all possible ways I have tried do not work, and I can't afford to buy the madmen of... Toshiba recovery media ?

    The 'disc Windows 7 from the manufacturer of your laptop upgrade' can be used to improve the qualification system of operating from 32-bit of Windows Vista that was originally installed on the laptop.  It cannot be used for any other configuration or purpose. Carey Frisch

    Actually, this isn't just a "upgrade drive" it's a full disc of Windows 7, I know that I can install full Windows 7 32 bit in a separate partition for Vista.

    The problem is solved in any case, I managed to hide my Vista (C) install with Acronis and boot to the WIndows 7 DVD. It then allowed me to install Windows 7 64 bit on the other Partition, because he did not think that 32-bit Windows Vista has been installed on the HARD drive. I managed to deceive it by showing the menu options of 32 bits or 64 bits in this way... I assumed it was a protection system put in place by Microsoft to stop upgrade problems if soemone tried upgrade Vista 32, Windows 7 64

    Now under Vista 32 and Widnws 7 64 on the same computer.

  • I have Windows XP 32 bit and you want to get 64-bit Windows 7, how do I do this, 32-bit to 64-bit?

    I have Windows XP 32 bit and you want to get 64-bit Windows 7, how do I do this, 32-bit to 64-bit?

    The upgrade to Windows XP?

    Please read these instructions carefully and completely before you begin installing Windows 7: there are important steps that you must follow to upgrade your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 in order to preserve your files and settings.

    Before you begin, you'll need to backup all your data to an external storage device, and you will need all the installation discs for the programs that you want to keep. Please make sure that you have an external hard drive (see details below).

    More detailed instructions are available at windows.microsoft.com/upgrade-windows-xp. Here are the basic steps.

    1. start Windows Upgrade Advisor (winodws.microsoft.com/upgradeadvisor) to see if there are known issues that may affect the installation and the question of whether you should install the version of 32 or 64 bit Windows 7.

    2 back up your files and settings on an external hard drive using Windows Easy Transfer (windows.microsoft.com/windows-easy-transfer). If you do not have an external hard drive, you will not be able to use Windows Easy Transfer. Alternatively, you can copy the files you want to keep on a USB stick, CD or DVD.

    3. you will need to manually reinstall your programs, such as Microsoft Office, after I installed Windows 7. Gather the installation for your programs and all partner/license product key discs. You may be able to download programs from the Internet. For example, Windows Live Messenger can be installed from the download.live.com/messenger.

    4. Insert the Windows 7 DVD in your PC. When asked "which type of installation you want. Click on "Custom (advanced)."

    5. when Windows 7 is installed, use Windows Easy Transfer to restore your files and settings.

    If you are not comfortable Windows 7 installation, check with a local retail or the services of the PC company store to see if they offer upgrade services. Andre Da Costa http://adacosta.spaces.live.com http://www.activewin.com
