    You appear to have a Dell Latitude D630 14.1" laptop. Is that correct?

    Its Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2.20 GHz processer is capable of running Windows 7 64-bit.

    Its primary devices (graphics, audio, ethernet, wireless) should all work with Windows 7 64-bit.

    You didn't say why you want to switch from 32-bit to 64-bit. You will need to do a clean install. You cannot do an upgrade and retain your programs and settings and data.

    Thank you very much for letting me know about x64 from a 32 bit, your answer is just what I wanted to know. the reason I wanted to know is that I have been woundering just how good my little computer was and since I have a instalation disk, I wanted to know if I could use it. Now I can dicide if I want to take my computer to the next step. again thank you

    3.48 GB of the 4 GB of RAM in that old laptop is usable.

    Windows 7 64-bit will allow all 4 GB to be used, but that's not a valid reason to switch to it.

    Windows 7 64-bit may also have compatibility issues with some of your older programs.

    Personally, I would stick with Windows 7 32-bit.

    I have four Windows 7 computers. Two are 32 bit (desktops) and 2 are 64 bit (netbooks); all have 4GB of RAM. Truthfully, the slowest of the four is a 64 bit Acer netbook. That's because of the CPU it has. I notice little difference between the other three computers.

    I'd also recommend sticking with 32 bit.

    True story; I got no 64 bit rigs. And the only one Ive used was about 8 years ago at work. I have yet to require one, so I've not, um, acquired one.

    Yeesh. That is why I dont rap.
