  • Is it possible to upgrade Windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit?

    Original title: Windows 7

    I have a Windows XP 32-bit SP3.  I also have a computer laptop vista 64 bit that I've upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit. two years later it crashed. I read on the internet the other day that Microsoft would cease to support XP. My question is can I put my XP 32 bit CPU with a Wdw 7 64-bit OS?

    No. two points:

    1. you can't do an update from XP to 7. You must either make a
    Clean first installation or an upgrade to double - Vista, then 7. I have
    recommend to do a double upgrade, because it doubles
    the risk of problems.

    2. you can't do any kind of update that changes the number of 'bits' of
    Windows from 32 bit to 64 bit or vice versa.
    So for these two reasons, a new facility would be necessary.

    However, even if a new facility is possible, I recommend
    against it since your time material XP is almost certainly elsewhere
    underpowered to run Windows 7 without problem. And the purchase and upgrading of all
    the necessary equipment is likely to cost more than simply buy a new
    a computer that comes with Windows 7.

    And another point. Switching from XP to Windows 7 will three
    old versions to an old version. In my opinion, it would be much better to
    Go to Windows 8, the current version.

  • Can I upgrade Windows Vista 32-bit to Windows Vista 64 - Bit and preserve everything?

    I have a computer with Windows Vista 32 - Bit OS.  I have also 4 GB of RAM, but as the OS is 32-bit, he acknowledges that 3 out of 4 GB.  So, my question is, can I upgrade to a version 64 bit Vista and preserve files and programs, or what I have to buy a copy of Windows Vista 64-bit?

    Thank you

    Hello.

    No.; You cannot switch from 32-bit to 64-bit.

    It must be done with a new installation of the 64-bit operating system.

    There has never been a way to upgrade.

    You should backup your data, copy it into the 64 bit OS and reinstall all your programs

    Microsoft sells more than Vista.

    And before you buy Windows 7:

    Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.

    If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.

  • Can I use a key to upgrade Windows 7 32 - bit for the upgrade to Vista 64 - bit, 7 64-bit, with a 64-bit upgrade disc?

    It's a bit complicated, but I appreciate all help.

    I have the following:
    1. access to a genuine copy of Windows Vista 64-bit (regardless of the version I want) through IEEE Computer Society.
    2. a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit upgrade disc purchased through a program of student software in 2010. Shortly after using the disk and the key, the laptop I was using died due to hardware problems.
    3. a drive to upgrade Windows 7 Professional 32 - bit bought via the same pattern of student software, including an unused key.
    Student software system only allows users to buy a copy of each version, so I can't buy it simply another copy of the 64-bit version.
    I wonder if it is possible to use the key of the 32-bit version with the version 64-bit upgrade disk to upgrade a 64 bit Windows Vista installation to Windows 7? If this is not the case, unfortunately, I'll be stuck with Vista.

    Ive bought a Satellite Pro C650 with Pentium duo core and 8 GB ram. I did the initial start upward according to the instructions, but the PC work as 32-bit and I do not have access to the total ram.

  • 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.

    Is it possible to update this model for 64-bit Windows 7?

    I could not find the driver for Win 7 64 bit on the page of the Toshiba driver, but Vista 64-bit drivers should be consistent, at least most of them.

    > When I try to run the 64-bit windows update 7 it will fail with a blue screen

    To be honest, I never did upgrade of Windows that I always prefer a clean install.
