I have windows vista family premium, my os is 32-bit, I want to upgrade my only 32-bit computer to a 64-bit. What should I do to change

my computer to 64-bit?

First, check with the manufacturer of the computer to determine bring them or not, he is capable of running a 64-bit operating system.  You should also check with the manufacturer of your devices (printer, scanner, webcam, etc.) to ensure that 64-bit device drivers are available.

Then buy Vista 64-bit edition desired and, after you have backed up all the data that you want to keep, format the hard drive and install the new OS, install your applications and restore your data.

  • I have windows 7 64 bit operating system says my computer starts windows system 32

    I have a gateway laptop with windows 7 Home premium. Clealy system I.D. indicates 64-Bit os.  Windows has been shut down and restart without being invited.  I wanted to see the info to start.  This computer starts up and all the info in the trunk are saying Windows 32-bit system? What happened here?  According to me, that's why Windows keeps stopping.  How can I fix this? At all times, may not install certain security updates as well.

    How can I suddenly have a 64-bit os which is starting to 32-bit.  It started in early April.

    Where do you see this saying 32-bit?

    If you open your Start menu, click computer and select Properties, the system properties box that opens will tell you the correct number of bits of your operating system.

    Please note that it is possible (and very common) to have a 64-bit processor in your computer, but a 32-bit operating system.  In fact, it is the most popular configuration of Windows 7.

    1 of 3. Theoretically you can upgrade the processor as follows:

    Processor Intel Core i7-820QM 1.73 GHz, SC turbo up to 3.06 GHz with 8 MB of L2 cache
    and 1333 MHz front side bus (FSB)

    Frankly I would not worth it. The workload and potential will weigh much more heavily in the balance than the gain of performance negigible. An SSD would be much easier and would provide even more performance gain in any other game.

    The GeForce 230 M is the best graphics available in this series, so there is no motherboard better. Graphic design is not a replaceable but welded card to the motherboard. There is only one available for this model fan. Perhaps you could improve its performance with best chocks composed or perhaps thermal thermal but it's a cutting-edge engineering.

  • I bought a "Windows Vista SP1 Upgrade disc" Wal-Mart and on the accident. I thought it was a full version, but turned out to be upgraded. How can I install this drive to upgrade on my computer if I do not already have an existing operating system?

    I bought a "Windows Vista SP1 Upgrade disc" Wal-Mart and on the accident. I thought it was a full version, but turned out to be upgraded. How can I install this drive to upgrade on my computer if I do not already have an existing operating system?

    You need a disk FULL/license to do a clean install, not an upgrade license.

    Take it back to Wal-Mart and see if you can exchange it.

    There are video games that are compatible with windows 7 64 bit operating systems?

    Hello Peter.

    Yes almost all games in 10 years works perfectly on 64-bit Windows.  What Call of Duty games are you having problems with?  If the first two, you might have to enter the video drivers for your graphics card/computer manufacturer as the first two required OpenGL which is not included with the drivers that Windows uses by default (this has been the case since at least Windows XP).

    I have a HP Pavilion a1615.uk (RF783AA) and I want to upgrade the hardware so I can install a 64-bit operating system. What should I do to make a 64-bit system? It is an upgrade of the bios or it means new equipment?

    Thank you very much

    Hello

    Normally, for modern machines we only need the 64 bit operating system itself and the drivers appropriate to go with it. There is no need to upgrade the hardware except we may want more RAM to use the 64 bit OS.

    In your case, the machine is too old, my suggestion is to buy a new machine. In the long run, can be cheaper than buying part and piece of component to upgrade the existing.

    Kind regards
