64 bit in most cases speeds up systems and allows you to use more memory where 32 bit will only allow you to use 4gb.

However, in your particular case your pc's motherboard is maxed out at 4gb's by default.

Another important thing to consider is the compatibility of your favorite games. I would recommend that since you are a gamer that you do some research into whether or not you will have any software conflicts. This is a regular complaint about 64 bit.

hope this helps

One thumb up for 'Slocuma1's' response? I don't know if you can get any better than that. You may want to reread it and try again.

UGuru and 64-bit Vista?


First of all, are you using the most recent version of uGuru? Previous versions did not work under Vista. The current version is 3.104. You can download it here: http://mainboard-drivers-and-utilities.free-driver-download.com/Abit/38474/Abit-uGuru-v3.104-Windows-2000-XP-2003-Vista-XP-x64.html Assuming you have the newest version, can you get me the exact text of the error message? That would make it easier to troubleshoot. -Dyllan

Where is product key code located I enter one on the backside of my computer and it won't take it


Are you sure you're using the right version of Windows? The label should tell you whether it's XP Home, XP Pro, Vista Ultimate, Vista home, etc. You have to match the version of Windows with the key code.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

System is very slove


To speed up your system, remove Windows Vista and switch back to Windows XP. Vista runs extremely slow on most computers.

Downgrade to XP


Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!

Wish to increase cpu spped and memory


Hi thefuncouple, here is the ASRock link for supported CPU's:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K7VM2&s=462
The Athlon XP 2600+ CPU is the highest CPU this board can support. (It will be hard to find one).
Main web site for the K7VM2: http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=K7VM2

Honestly, ASRock does not have drivers for Vista. Some of the drivers listed for XP may work with Vista. Your best chance is to download & run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor 1.0
(Before installing Vista in to your system).
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=42b5ac83-c24f-4863-a389-3ffc194924f8&DisplayLang=en
Vista, any version needs at least 1GB of memory. Two GB is recommended. After running Upgrade Advisor you will know if your ASRock motherboard can handle Vista. You should be able to upgrade to Vista (Over-writing XP) but only if your system passes the Upgrade Advisor.
Your best bet would be to buy a new system with Vista on it. Your ASRock board is just too old for Vista. You'll save money upgrading to a more supportive PC.

Good luck thefuncouple!
Vista is not for everyone, many users end up going back to XP.
Thank you for using fixya.
