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 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:

32bit is the standard for most of todays functions. 64 bit systems are more for corporate environments. You will have a lot of software incompatibilty issues running a 64 bit system. Why would you want to change it?

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.

I just bought a 62-bit processor laptop. Can I


I assume your talking 64 bit and 32 bit, No you cannot use 32 bit in a 64 bit processor. You may be able to do it tho' by changing the compatibility but it's easier to use 64 bit.

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.

I need to change the settings on my computer from 32 bit to 64 bit so I can install Adobe Flash Player to play video clips in Real Player. What is the best & easiest way to do this?


Friend,
It is not the settings that change Windows from 32 to 64 bits. It is the Windows Operating System and the PC/laptop that too has to be 32 or 64 bits. You can install 32 bits Adobe Player from the net.
