Dilema: Install Windows 7 (64-bits) or keep XP (32-bits)

Question: Dilema: Install Windows 7 (64-bits) or keep XP (32-bits)

Hey,
as the title says, I find myself in a dilema..

It started when I decided I wanted to put a total of 4GB of RAM in my computer. The problem is that I have Windows XP x86 (32-bits) installed.
Then, a few friends of mine adviced me to get rid of this old Windows XP (32-bits), get the total of 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 x64.

My CPU's architecture supports x64 systems, as I have 4 cores. My main problem, is that I would have to reinstall all my programs, applications and drivers (because I have the 32-bits-versions installed) and that if I stay with my 32-bits-XP system, it would only read 3 to 3.5GB of RAM aprox.

In response to this, a friend told me that Windows 7 x64 wouldn't cause compatibility issues with those 32-bit programas, applications and drivers. However, if I'd like to get the best performance, I would have to download/get the x64-compatible-versions..

To sum it up, I would really like if you experts could help me and get me out of this dilema. Is it true what my friends mentioned me? Should I change and get the new Windows 7 x64? Which would be the downsides and which the upsides?

I would also like to mention that I am a still and motion graphics designer, and that the latest softwares for that (for instance all Adobe CS4) have come out x64.This would definitely be a plus if I change to Windows 7 x64, right?

Thank you very, very much.. Really.
Best regards,
Chris.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I installed Autocad 2010 in window 7(64 bits). I couldn't install because Autocad software software is 32 bits. Window 7 is 64 bits. So it couldn't not install. So I would like to know how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7.

Answer:how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7

32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows 7 without any special steps being taken. Windows 7 64 bit actually maintains a 32 bit registry in order to accommodate 32 bit programmes.If you cannot install Autocad the problem is likely to be something more that the 32/64 bit difference. There is the possibility that it wouldn't even install on 32 bit Widows 7 and it is the OS itself that is the problem.You need to contact Autocad and see what they say about the problem, after all they know there own software better than anyone else.Stuart

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

WiNToBootic bootable usb drive windows vista/7/8 - Bootable USB | Bootable USB

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Home Premium and Professional 64 Bit are both 3.09 GBs

Hello Tech Support Guy Nation,

So I have an issue with getting a laptop hooked onto the router signal. The router is a brand spankin new Linksys EA4500 and the laptop is an IBM which is running Win XP (not sure of SP version as it is a customer's comp. at a hotel I run). Anyway, the error message I am encountering is:

The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters

At first I thought is was my router password since it contained a $ symbol so I changed it to only letters and numbers but still didn't work. I have never encountered this error message on any laptops and no other rooms have been affected. Thank you as always for the the knowledge...
 

Answer:Solved: Error Message:"The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending.

You are using WPA or WPA2 encryption and the laptop--because of the lack of at least service pack 2, incorrect wireless driver, or old wireless adapter--does not support WPA(2).

This is a rather unsual error message from Windows 7, that cannot even run 16-bits programs, quote:

"Too many other files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of files in your Config.sys file."

The only time that this issue shows up is when trying to run a program as administrator from within my standard user account. The "Run as..." could be initiated either manually, or by running a program that requires elevated access rights to the system, such as starting an installation as a standard user.

The error is seemed to be triggered by the UAC, or more accurately the "consent.exe" file that actually locks up the screen and nothing can be accessed. It seems that the system is waiting for input for the UAC, clicking anywhere on the screen results in the typical error sound but nothing else. The "ctrl-alt-del" does bring up a list, selecting log out pops up the quoted error message during the logoff process. Logging back in with the same UID seems normal, until the "Run as..." initiated and the system seems locked again. Rebooting the system clears up this error, but it does come back in an irregular interval. The timeframe could be from an hour, or more, on some days it does not come back at all.

While Windows 7 64-bit does not have a "config.sys" file, one has been added to "C:\" that contains:

Answer:16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

Well, having the "config.sys" file did not help. The system still have the same issues as posted earlier. Removing EMET 3.5 didn't help either...

Other than the "Run as...", the system works fine with any other programs. While I could grant administrator access to my user account, I'd prefer not to do it.

Would anyone have an idea what could cause this issue?

Hello Dare2winnn,

It's recommended to use a 64-bit AV program on a 64-bit OS for full protection. Some 32-bit AV programs will not install on a 64-bit OS.

Can someone explain these figures to me? Im talking about 8 Bits/channel in terms of imagery and pictures. I dont really get these. Is it the smaller the number, the better the picture? And, I heard that there are also different colour channels? Like Red and Blue channels, are these just the channels in which the computer can read and identify?And what about 48 bit colour? Is that in the same category as 8 Bits/channel? Or is it something totally different.I need to know more about colours.Thanks.

Answer:48 bits 16 bits 8 Bits Channel.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click hereAnd when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.

I've just installed both versions of Windows 7, 32-bit and 64-bit, through Parallels 8 on a Mac running Lion. Next step: installing Office 2010, Home & Student Edition. It works in 32-bit Windows 7, but I only tried this after it failed in 64-bit Windows 7, which is the OS I'd prefer to run.

In 64-bit Windows 7, the Office installation disk does not autorun (but it does in 32-bit Win). When I navigate to the setup.exe files (for 32-bit, 64-bit, and apparently 86-bit), clicking on them always results in the "Not a valid Win32 application" message and I can go no further. Clicking on the autorun file results in Notepad attempting to open the file for editing (FYI, Notepad fails because it says the file is too big).

I selected the same options for both Windows installations. What can I do to make 64-bit Windows 7 properly install Office? Why isn't it working?

Thanks!

Answer:Can't install Office 2010 (any # of bits) in Windows 7 (64-bit)

I identified the problem, and it was related to Parallels rather than to Windows. Mysteriously, in the Parallels "Devices" menu, my DVD drive had been disabled (but the DVD was still visible within the Windows interface). I re-enabled it and was able to install Office no problem.

Answer:Need help in 32 bits to 64 bits switching...

Hi Bruce2,

Welcome to the forum.

Since you are switching from 32 bit to 64 bit Vista, the safest route is to just backup any files you do not want to lose to a CD/DVD. You can just transfer them back when done installing the 64 bit. There is just to much of a difference to do a complete backup and restore between the two bit version with your programs and installers.

If you would like to make it even easier, have all of your programs and 64 bit drivers installation files on DVD as well.

Yes, but you will need a separate license key for each one. You really do not need both though since 64bit will run all 32bit programs. Also consider that 32bit cannot properly use RAM more than 3Gb, but 64bit runs best on 4Gb or more. You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hey guys,

I got this old desktop, that I been having windows issues, I tried to reinstall it and I had a hard time to complete the windows installation, it would mark an error in mid process. So I finally got it done, and started to have alot of blue screen and restarts on the pc.

I went straight to the HDD, I have checked it too many times and they all say it's okay. So I got two theories, it's either my motherboard or the dvd drives... which kinda odd, but both should be damage.

Anyway, I recently had an issue and all usb drives went death. I know the hardware works, because they are on up until windows starts running, they go death. I had issues on the usb drives, but keyboard and mouse worked, to have a usb storage I would disable and enable the usb drive and it would work. Now nothing. I been using teamviewer to control the desktop.. quite funny.

So after all the background and long story, I been going down to reinstall windows, I last installed a 64 bits, because I recently upgrade it to 4 GBs of RAM, but don't how convinient it is. Don't know if it's okay to reinstall a 64 bits or just go back to 32 bits? I mainly use it for LAN media streaming and storing info.


Specs are:

Processor Intel? Pentium? D

Level 2 (L2) Cache at least 2 MB

Memory dual-channel 667 DDR2 4Gbs

Answer:Which version to install on an old Desktop? 32 or 64 bits

I'd first check out all the hardware. Your problems sound like they are all hardware related and not OS related. Like the RAM is bad or even the drive though it tests OK.

Hello,

I Just bought a copy of Windows 7 64 bits and when I run the setup, I get an error saying
that I cannot install Windows 7 on this version of Vista. I have read that it is because I'm on
a 32 bit OS.

Thus my question: How can I do a clean install? Any way to format C: on Vista? Will 7 run at startup if I can format my drives?

Thanks

Answer:Can't install Win7 64 bits on Vista

Start your PC, stick the Win 7 dvd into the drive, go into the bios and set your dvd drive as the 1st boot device. Save and exit the bios. When the setup gets to the drive selection format the drive. You will lose all of the data on the drive, make a backup of any files you want to keep before you start the Win 7 setup procedure.

Hey everyone!

So.. I've got a machine on one of my networks that was victim to a nasty virus a few months back. I cleaned it and verified that it was healthy again and sent it on it's way.

Yesterday, our IP was blacklisted for spam suddenly. After checking the logs from the mail service and firewall.... the same little machine showed up as the culprit.

I pulled it into the shop and cleaned it again (different virus/trojan this time.. both times due to the user disabling the network AV) and decided to make sure this lil' guy was all up to date.

Windows update services are missing. Not only are they missing from Services.msc but also the associated files are missing. Wuauserv and BITS

I've read around and have seen people with similar problems of windows update not working. Not many have drilled down into these files being missing or described a fix for the problem.

Ordinarily, I'd just wipe the disk and re-install the OS but this particular machine has a few software applications for the company that are... um.. troublesome to re-install due to the manufacturer being a PITA about licensing and usage records. (It's all legitimate and paid for, they just register the CPU once on their servers and then tell you to go buy another copy if something happens to that machine)

I'd like to avoid a wipe/re-install if at all possible.

I've tried:

Norton DNS is just a secure dns ..so it will just block malicious domains from loading in your browser....

What exactly happens?Does the installation process start or ?
From where did you download the installer? It's a web or standard installer?
What security products do you have running in real time?What security products did you previously had installed?

Question: windows 64 bits

good day
how do i know , 9if their are any way ) what windows i do have in my PC , it is windows 64 bits or other. thank you verry much. and what it is the difference between the 2 windows.

Answer:windows 64 bits

howdy Leduc,

If you right click the "my computer" Icon and click properties it will tell you right in that window what version you are using..

As for which one is better? That depends. If you are using a 64 bit cpu like an AMD 64 then the 64 it will work. If not then it will not work. Another easy way is to know what type of cpu you have. If it is not a 64 bit cu then you cannot have a 64 bit os..

What type of cpu do you have?

Hi,

I need your advices about wheter I should install Seven ultimate 32 or 64 bits.
My configuration is a bit oldish and I am not going to upgrade it.
- Gigabyte GA-K8NS
- Sempron64 3100+
- 3x1GB of DDR PC3200
Most of the application I use are so far only available in 32 bits.
All my hardware have 64 bits driver.
Got only 3GB of RAM so it is fully addressed by Seven 32

Do I get any better performance by having Seven 64
and use mostly 32 bit applications ?

Answer:Windows seven 32 or 64 bits

If your computer is old and most of the programs would not run with 64 bit, I would stay with 32. The performace increase would be marginal, at best.

Hello:

We plan to buy several laptops and desktop preloaded with XP and most of them will have at least 8 GB of memory.

From what I have read XP 32 bits cannot access more than 4 GB. Is this true? What would happen if I install 8 GB on an XP 32 bits machine?

Should we go ahead with 32 bits or 64 bits?

I've heard that the 64 bits laptop drivers are kinda expensive.

I'm not sure if all of our existing applications (i.e. antivirus) installed on our existing xp 32 bits machines could be installed on a 64 bits machine with no problems.

Or would we need to purchase the 64 bit versions?

Thanks and help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows XP 32 or 64 bits?

it is true 32 bit will only see about 3 gigs, however, companies are not beyond selling more than what is needed for the sake of a sale. It is done all the time.

drivers are free. Just go the specific laptops manufacturers website and see if they have 64 bit drivers, if they do, all you have to do is download and install - once you install a 64 bit os. However if they don't then there is a good chance your computer would not support 64 bit os for the specific operating system.

64 is the norm now. generally speaking 64 bit computers will support either 32 or 64 bit drivers and software.

one other thing to consider, if you want to upgrade from 32 to 64 bit, you will have to do a complete install of the os. You cannot upgrade.

Hi

I have a simple question that I haven't been able to find the answer to by searching, so I'm hoping someone here knows.

Is there a way to tell if a Windows 7 installation is 32 bit or 64 bit simply by looking in the install folders/files? The reason I ask is that I have a few USB sticks that I made into bootable Windows 7 installations. It took hours, and I don't really want to redo it if I can help it. I didn't label which was 32 bit and 64 bit. I realize I could install them on a virtual machine and tell that way... but it'd be much easier if I could simply browse them and know that way somehow.

We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

Try these free tests first:

CHKDSK /R /F:
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

CHKDSK LogFile:
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.

Question: How to configure my system to make use of all the available memory.
Symptoms: Max memory used by my system is approx 3 GB

Your system will only use what it needs currently my system is using 1988MB of 7166MB but will use more as required like gaming.

I've have tried to download the latest update from Windows, but I get the error code of 0x80246008, meaning the BITS wasn't on. After trying to turn on the BITS, I get the error code 998. I have looked on some sites and I can't seem to find the answer. If there is an easy way to fix it and that I can get updating again, that would be great.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

The drivers from Acer website are all 64 bits. I have tried it 2 times, the second time doing a clean install, but now I can't return to Windows 8.1 because it doesn't show the option anymore. So, how can I upgrade from Windows 10 32 bits to Windows 64 bits? Thanks in advance, John Lewis

______________T400 (2767-AK3)

Answer:T400 4GB Vista or Windows 7 32 bits with PAE. Why not possible?

Because 32 Bit can only address a certain amount of memory and some OS may use less for the PCI devices. But only a 64 BIT OS would use the full amount of 4GB. Hope that helps and answers your question.

Windows 8 RTM for IT Pros and developers will be coming August 15th (via Technet and MSDN). I wonder if Lenovo officially supports upgrading our PCs to Windows 8 then. I have the A720 and mysteriously, the C: drive is the larger, HDD whereas the D: drive is the smaller, SSD. I don't want to simply start the installation from within Windows 7 because then it will install on C: drive which is not what I want. I could blow away the entire existing install and start from scratch with the SSD for install but I suspect there is some Lenovo magic happening behind the scenes (as in, it is using the SSD for system use even though Windows seems to be installed on C: drive). I don't want to mess with that, if I can avoid it. Is there a Lenovo recipe for upgrading to Windows 8 on this PC?

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I was able to upgrade for free to Windows 10 from Windows 7. And to be honest I'm don't really like to upgrade, I always want to do a fresh install when I have to change my operating system. And from what I read on some blogs, there are issues with the activation of Windows 10 that can only be fixed by upgrading to Windows 10 and then from there to make a bootable USB using their Windows 10 Tool.
So I did that. I upgraded from Windows 10 using their app and now I want to make the USB stick for a fresh install. The problem is that today, when I put Windows 10 to download, for some reason my house ran out of power for few seconds and for some reason. Exactly then. What are the chances? Anyway, I won't go into details, let's just asume it is the same thing as running out of batery on a laptop.
I restarted the computer and tried to continue the thing. But then there was a problem. When I re-run the Windows 10 Download Tool I got this error: https://i.imgur.com/EUtHfio.png
I looked on C:\ and found these 2 folders (https://i.imgur.com/2RTIgTE.png) that includes, I guess, the .iso with Windows 10? https://i.imgur.com/0R76Sm6.png
So I tried to delete that folder and start over with the Tool. But I couldn't delete the folder because it was used in a program. Then I found that the program was a service, which is BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service). I stopped the service and managed to delete the folders and then i tried to run the Tool again.

I have installed on my Thinkpad T410 (MIM: 2522AR3) Windows 10 PRO 32 bits and works fine. I need to upgrade from Windows 10 32 bits to 64 bits and I follow all the Microsoft steps in order to do a clean installation of the 64 bits version. I generate the ISO image on an USB stick in order to boot the notebook with this USB stick. Up to this point all works fine. The problem starts when I want to boot with the 64 bits ISO on my USB stick. The installation begin but some minutes after, the notebook shut down and  start booting again and again, until I disconnect the USB stick. I recieved no messagges. So, I can not install the 64 bits Windows 10 version. Some of you experienced the same problem? It is possible to install Windows 10 64 bits versión on a T410?  I will thanks a lot your comments and/or recommendations. Thanks in advance and have a nice day!! 

Answer:Thinkpad T410 and Windows 10 64 bits.

Try booting the computer using the USB stick, then once it boots then remove the USB stick, and let the install take place.  My guess is during the install the computer reboots at some point and with the USB stick still in the machine it boots to it first and keeps rebooting automatically as a result.  I seem to recall a time given before the system restarts if no selection is made.

Please advice me whether this is a wise move or should I keep vista

Answer:I have vista 64 bits and would like to upgrade to windows 8

Hard to say.

If you are happy with Vista - you might not like win8.

It is very different - not just the UI , but the whole push to online services.

You might be better trying the Preview - as a trial and see what you think.

The preview isn't identical to the released version - released version is worse imo.

I have Win8 - I don't like it.

I spend most of my time in Win7 - a little time in Vista - and have no particular desire to boot into Win8.

EDIT - i am not sure the preview is available now they are selling the thing.

There are a handful of fanbois on the site who act like it is the second coming.

I expect they will pitch in.

Hi !!

I recently installed Win 7 Ultimate for a friend of mine in his computer. He didnt knew how to install it, so he called me to do it.
At first, i had a hard time installing it cause it was taking a very long time. Then, i disabled the floppy in bios, after that installation only took 20 minutes or so.
After a few days, he started to have some BSOD... It was the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_IGUAL BSOD, i also solved that problem with a windows hotfix i found in microsoft website.
After that, everything was fine for a week or so.
Then, it started again with the BSODs. I have here 3 diferents BSOD from the last 4 days. All have diferent problems.
I really dont understand why his computer is getting that much trouble with Win 7. I have Win 7 here, the same version he have, and i got no problem with it.

His specs are:

CPU E2180
Boad Abit I-N73H
ATI HD 2400 (with last drivers from ati for win 7)
Sound card Realtek onboard (with last drivers from realtek for win 7)
1x 2gb RAM
1TB Hardrive
Power Supply 500W

The drivers for the other components on the Motherboard are the last from ABIT.
ABIT only have Vista drivers on their website for that motherboard, i guess that could be the problem.
I've done exaustive testing on his computer, RAM was tested sucessfully (with Memtest), Hardrive was tested, scanned and desfragmented and no problems were found.
Also, that computer is working slow at time, he play a lot in online games. At times, just a simple alt+tab or right click in anything can ... Read more

It was showing as @%SystemRoot%\system32\qmgr.dll, -1000.Managed to repair the service but after rebooting it became corrupted again.Due to this I was unable to run windows updates2) The firewall kept disabling itself when booting into Windows but would then enable itself again immediately.3) Wouldn’t let me do a system restore
As a result of this I rebuilt the PC by re-installing Windows XP and everything has been fine for a few days until the following as occurred:
1) Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) was corrupted again and stopping the service from running. It is still showing as @%SystemRoot%\system32\qmgr.dll, -1000.2) The Network connection is very intermittent and keeps dropping out.3) Still won’t let me do a system restore.
 
Are these issues hardware related? I’ve ran a disk check and memory check and everything has come back okay. Could it be a registry error?
I've ran Malwarebytes and AVG and both have come back clean.

My Windows Update has refused to download updates since Nov. 1, and it currently reads that there are 14 important updates pending. I can't recall if I downloaded something that may have caused this, but all research indicates that it's spyware-related.

Research also pointed me in the direction of my BITS service possibly being disabled; when I went into services I found that it was not only disabled, it was nonexistent. All searches regarding this problem have turned up results for XP, which have had no result in Vista. I have no restore point to go back to, and I'm started to get rather frustrated (not to mention worried).

Any help on getting the BITS service reinstalled, and hopefully, Windows Update working again?

For the record, the error code I'm getting is 80246008.

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
