Hi. Please provide more information about your problem. Generally, if you have 32bit hardware, you need 32bit operating system and software and 64bit hardware needs 64bit operating system and software. You can't change your OS from 32 to 64bit if your computer is 32bit. You can see the information on the General Tab of your My Computer > Properties

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Linux such as Ubuntu has 64bit version.

Let me know if you need further assistance and I'm happy to help.

Can't detect XP discs in win 64 bit


Hello Joe, 64-bit processing is faster than 32-bit processing because the CPU is handling more bits at once, However, a 64-bit OS requires more resource than a 32-bit OS, A 64-bit OS requires that device drivers operating in kernel mode be a 64-bit drivers, These drivers must be available from the device manufacturer. An application is compiled to process 64-bit or 32-bits. A 64-bit OS can run either 64-bit applications or 32-bit applications, but 64-bit applications are faster also 64-bit applications cannot run on a 32-bit OS.
A 32-bit OS can only address up to 4 GB of memory, More than that might be on the motherboard, but the OS cannot use it, because it does not have enough memory addresses to assign to the physical memory. A 64-bit OS theoretically can address up to 1 terabyte of memory although in practice, most motherboards can only hold from 12 to 16 GB of memory.( A terabyte is roughly 1000 GB or 1 trillion bytes). If you open many applications at the same time and have high computing needs and enough hard drive space and memory, you can benefit from 64-bit computing. To get most out of it, the processor, motherboard, operating system, drivers and applications must all be 64-bit, and you should have installed the maximum amount of memory the motherboard supports.

Hi,
64 bit OS can run 32 bit software but if the software provider has a version for 64 bit it might require you to download this version ad prevent you from installing the 32 bit version.
Kind regards

How do I change my laptop from 32-bit to 64-bit?


You have to check whether your CPU (Processor) support 64 bit before you can install any windows 64bit OS(Operating Systyem).

Check with the manufacturer Site first, ie if you Laptop support the 64 bit OS. Then download the any 64 bit drivers needed for the devices for your laptop before you begin your 64 bit OS installation.

If your laptop do support the 64 bit OS, best is to do a fresh installation.

Hope it helps.

Can i installed 32 bit applications on 64 bit processor?


The answer to your question above is Yes, you can install 32-bit applications on a 64-bit desktop/laptop. Please note 3 things:
1. The 64-bit environment will be determined by both the CPU and OS being 64-bit capable. If one of the them is not, then the system will not perform at the 64-bit level.
2. 32-bit applications can be installed on a 64-bit OS and they will function properly - but only at a 32-bit level. They will not take advantage of the 64-bit environment until the application is certified for 64-bit.
3. 64-bit applications cannot be installed on a 32-bit environment - they won't run at all.

32 or 64 bit


Right click My Computer, click Properties, in the General tab you will see what type of Operating System you have - 32 or 64 bit(64 bit OS's are rarely installed since the devices and software now in use rarely work with them, at least for now, probably this will change in the future). You should buy/install only what is certified to work on your OS.

You can run a 32 bit technology OS on a 64 bit technology platform.

It will run pretty fast.

You just can't run a 64 bit technology OS on a 32 bit technology platform, though the 64 bit OS is recommended on a 64 bit platform.

Love your brother, he did you no wrong.
