Well in laymen terms nowadays 64 bit is newer tecnlogy and 64 bits one process 64 units of data at a time as compared to 32 bit OS.

64 bit is in core 2 Duo and later systems..

64 bit OS provide full support to the 64 bit architecture thus gaining the overall efficiency.

How do i load a34bit onto a 64 bit system ?


Normally, a 32-bit program will run fine on a 64-bit system. However, a 64-bit program will not run on a 32-bit system. In a 64-bit system, there are sometimes two directories for program files, one for 32-bit programs and one for 64-bit programs.

If you are trying to load a 32-bit operating system over a 64-bit operating system, I think you loose everything on the 32-bit system, so make sure that you backup all your files. Another alternative would be to make a dual boot system, where when it boots up, you have the choice of going into the 32-bit system or the 64-bit system.

Good luck,

Paul

Install it on the 64bit machine, right click the program icon, choose properties, run compatibility mode for xp most 64bit machine will run 32 bit programs this way.if this does not work partition the HD to run dual operating system so you have both 64 and 32 bit o.s. which you can choose on startup and run the 32bit programs on the 32 bit operating system.

Can you run office 32 bit on a windows 64 bit operating system?


You have 32-bit Office installation package (CD/DVD/file) and 64-bit Windows operating system. Is it correct?

General answer is YES, I can install a 32-bit application on 64-bit OS. I have exactly same situation in my laptop. Both 32-bit LibreOffice and 32-bit MS Office are installed on W7 & W8 laptops and work well.
But NO vice versa. The 32-bit system does not allow to install 64-bit application. The 32b system does not support 64b instruction set required for 64b applications.

My experience is confirmed by many other users:

64-bit central processing unit is one that can support a higher amount of system resources than a 32-bit counterpart.
It has the ability to both recognize and use more amounts of available system memory to go along with its faster processing speeds.
If you want to install a 32-bit operating system on a computer with a 64-bit processor, you can--but you won't be taking full advantage of what your system has to offer you.

Place the installation disc for your 32-bit operating system in your computer's disc drive.
This can be one that you've purchased, as in the case of Microsoft's Windows operating system, or one that you've downloaded from the Internet, in the case of the Linux operating system.
Shut down your computer. Once completely off, turn it back on again.

Click "Next" to continue through your 32-bit operating system's setup program.
You will be asked to read the "TOS," or terms of service.
This is important legal information that you should read in detail, as it informs you of exactly what you're agreeing to by installing this operating system.

Specify any settings changes you want to make to the way your operating system is installed.
From these screens you can also input personal information into your operating system, such as your name or business information, which will save you the trouble of having to do it later when you install utilities.
Click "Install." The 32-bit operating system's setup program will format your hard drive, erasing all data on it.
It will then place the necessary operating system files on your computer.
This can take an hour or more depending on the operating system being used.
Once this process is finished, allow your computer to automatically restart.

How much i upgrade processor


http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/index.html
You will need to type motherboard name ID and the cpu ID
Significance
Upgrading to more modern operating systems depends on the type of processor in the computer.
One of the main differences between the two systems is that a 32-bit operation requires either a 32-bit or 64-bit processor, while a 64-bit version must have at least a 64-bit processor.

Identification
The operating system will register different on each computer that is running the platform. When a user clicks on the Start button, they can go to the Control Panel, followed by the System and Maintenance tab and click on System.
This will show whether the computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system

I have an other brain teaser! bought a laptop (sony vaio) it had vista on 32bit.i upgraded to win.7 ultimate. 32bit. could it be maybe it is a 64 bit base? nota geniouse but could this be why my bat


Beginning with the release of Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit operating systems are slowly becoming extremely prevalent in today's market. 64-bit operating systems are poised to eventually replace 32-bit operating systems entirely. At the present however, 32-bit applications still vastly outnumber 64-bit applications. Luckily, 64-bit operating systems are capable of running 32-bit operating systems. In 64-bit operating systems, 32-bit applications are installed to a second program files folder, named "Program Files (x86)." Programs installed in the x86 folder can be initialized just like programs installed in the regular Program Files folder.

Open the 32-bit programs folder. Go to Start > Computer > Local Disk (C:), then click on "Program Files (x86)." Open the desired program folder. The executable file for the program will be located inside the folder. Double-click on the file with the ".exe" file extension. As an example, for the QuickTime program you would double-click on the "QuickTimePlayer.exe" file. You have now successfully run a 32-bit application in your 64-bit operating system. Hope this helps.

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

32 bit IE won't connect to internet in Vista 64 bit.


32 bit programs, last I checked, won't work in a 64 bit operating system, just as 64 bit won't work in 32 bit operating systems.

If 32 bit programs will work in a 64 bit OS, they probably won't work properly.
