I run Vista 64 bit with no issues at all. 64 bit is the future of the computer world. If software is made to utilize 64 bit operating systems the speed is quite remarkable. 64 bit Vista is still backward compatible with 32 bit so virtually all programs except for the oldest legacy stuff. Also 64 bit allows you to surpass 32 bit's 3 gigabyte memory barrier. Vista 64 can use up to 128 gigabytes. It may not seem important now ,but at the rate computers evolve it will.

Can i convert my Dell Inspiron 532 from 32 bit to 64 bit processing?


Windows will not install if you have more then 4GB of memory. Reconfigure the ram so it only has 4 GB and it should install.

I recently updated to windows 7 from vista. im having loads of problems with my intel chipset with integrated graphics...i got the windows 7 drivers for it already and im still having problems idk if its...


You'll need to access the computer manufacturer's support site to find the appropriate 64-bit driver for this chipset. If you post the make/model of computer I can probably assist with that.

Hope that's helpful.

I've just upgraded my OS from 32bit Vista to 64bit Windows 7, I'm now trying to reinstall my printer HP C7100 but I now have an error saying the system does not meet one or more of the minimum...


Hi,

You need to install the 64 bit driver for Windows 7.

Let's start here: HP C7100 Series Support

You may want to bookmark this page for future reference.

Click on Software & Driver Downloads. Then select your OS from the drop-down menu: Windows 7 (64 Bit). You can download the software or order a CD...or both if desired. If you do not have broadband, forget downloading because the file is almost 300MB.

Here are my suggestions for downloading and installing:

When you get the download window, select Save. This will open a window to direct where to save it. On the left side, click on Desktop and then click the Save button. This will download the file to your Desktop.

When the download is complete, close all programs. Make sure you remove all previous software that you attempted to install. Verify the printer is NOT listed in your Printers folder.

Disconnect one end of the printer's USB cable. Leave it powered on though. Reboot the computer and again verify software and the printer are gone.

Double-click the file on the Desktop that you downloaded. This will begin the install process. Connect the USB cable when prompted.

That should get you going.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Looking for update drivers for amd athlonx2 5200+ 64 ,what is best os for this processor windows xp or 7 32bit or 64bit


It was designed for today's systems so the Win7x64 would be the best choice.Problem being,64 bit apps are still lagging in catching up as far as volume. Cost will be the same with either version of 7,they're on the same disk if you buy the full retail version.
You could go cheaper by using XP,the rumors are already out about "Windows 8",it won't be named that.
You need to decide on your OS before you download your drivers.XP and 64 bit Win7 will not be the same.
Post back and let me know what you want to go with and I'll find it for you.
Please rate my post?
Thanks

Lag lag


Have you tried to review the systems requirements for Windows 7? In case you don't, try to review this system requirements and see if your PC falls in. If not, then its the primary cause of the "lag" computer.

If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Is there any other OS that is compatible with windows 7? All of my software is for my Vista. Is ther anything else I can do to make my OS more compatible?


Programs released before the market release of Windows 7 are most likely XP and Vista compatible only. What I recommend is to check the websites of those programs for available updates or upgrades. Newer versions of software are Windows 7 compatible.

Acer Aspire x3200 vista 64 bit upgraded to windows 7 32 bit. Coprocessor now has a yellow exclamation make. I have tried to update the driver but it cannot find any.


better wa y is to downgrade your OS back to Vista 64bit, the problem with windows 7 is that most of the drivers operational to xp and vista are still not supported by windows 7.

windows vista does this for two reasons
one is that the game doesnt has compatibility issues with the OS,,
other reason is it has something called data execution prevention(DEP) which causes any software which uses resource above a particular amount to close by itself....
