Like pnetiums it has 64 bit capability but you probably are running it in 32-bit mode because you have a 32-bit OS installed.

I have an Acer Aspire one and it won't let me change my resolution off of 800x600 I have windows 7 ultimate x64 (32-bit right?) i need help to get my 1024x600 res back.


Generally - you simply need to right-click anywhere on the desktop that does not have an icon present, and select "Screen resolution". Adjust the slider as needed to obtain the desired resolution. If the resolution desired is not available, choose another that is close.

Digging deeper, you might want to investigate the "Advanced settings" to make sure that you've got the correct drivers loaded in the settings for both the "Adapter" and "Monitor" tabs.

Lastly, "Windows Ultimate x64" is the 64 bit version of Windows. The 32-bit version is referred to as "Windows Ultimate x86" If there are both 32-bit and 64-bit drivers available for your Aspire, make sure you get the correct version 32-bit = x86 and 64-bit = x64. The "x86" tag came from the Intel processor line up where the "x" represented the generation (8, 16 and 32 bit CPUs) and the "86" were the last two digits to indicate the instruction set used by the CPU like this:

8086, 80286, 80386, 80486, etc.

The 64 bit CPUs are not x86 family processors, so they do not carry the x86 tag. Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you - good luck!

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and

Hi delta force,

The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. For gaming, you need to view the system requirements on each game to determine if the software is compatible with 64bit. Not all games will work on a 64 bit processor. Some of the newer more graphic games are compatible with 64bit, but I'd check before you purchase. Also, when you purchase a 64 bit processor machine, you'll find that not all your old software will run under it. You may have some problems and will need to upgrade those versions to thier 64 bit version software, (if available). It's great when it works!

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating,

Thanks Mark
