So I asked a question yesterday and thanks for the reply’s.
I have another question, So I have the 32 bit upgrade disc for windows 7 professional.
I downloaded the windows 7 professional 64 bit.
Will my key work for the one i downloaded?
Windows Vista & Windows 7 keys are interchangeable between processor architectures until they’re assigned to a specific computer during Windows Activation
I have a Windows 7, 64 bit Home Premium acer laptop.
I’m trying to run old games such as Kings Quest 7 and Monopoly (trying to re live my childhood) problem is whenever I try to install it, it comes up with the error message:
” the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you’re running. check your compiters system information to see whether you need an x86 (32 bit) or x64 (64 bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher”
I’ve tried dos box and even downloading a ‘virtual XP PC’ thing to get them to work but dos box isnt opening them and the virtual xp – pc thing is only avaliable to people who have Windows 7 professional and higher.
Any suggestions? This is KILLING me!
Try using vmware to get a virtual windows7 system 32 bit
ok so earlier this week i bought the student downloadable upgrade to windows 7 for 30 dollars.. and when i downloaded and tried to update it said something about it not working because i had a 32 bit vista.. even though my laptop can handle 64 bit..
i tried putting it on a disc and reformatting but it wouldnt boot from cd..
the one i bought was 64 bit professional
they just sent me a link to download 32 bit professional
can i do the windows update from basic to professional without reformatting?
This was actually a very common problem, it is a problem on microsofts end so you will have to keep looking for when they fix it, because i dont think they have yet
I use a Windows XP .vhd file in Windows Virtual PC. However I can only see 16-Bit color options. I want to change the color to 32-Bit Depth but I can’t see an option for that. It’s because I try to put a Vista Wallpaper in it but the color’s all screwed up. If I change it to 32-Bit it will work fine but I can’t do that. Please help and give suggestions.
Computer Specs :
Windows XP Professional SP3 x86 (32-Bit), running on – Windows 7 Ultimate x86′s (32-Bit) Virtual PC.
1.91 GHz – 2 GB Ram – Intel Integrated Graphics.
P:S The Virtual Hard disk file (.vhd) and Virtual PC was downloaded from the official site (Microsoft).
Have tried a restore point.
It recognizes that my phone is connected and it will transfer the photos taken from my phone to my computer, but if I change a playlist or download a song from the phone or computer it does not transfer to the other device. It even says that it syncs but nothing ever changes after it does (except the pictures).
For clarity, I am using a Dell XPS M1530, Windows 7 Professional on a 32-bit system.
Apple is a huge organization bent on trying to take over the electronics market. Apple starts by allowing both PC users and Mac users download and install iTunes onto their computer machines. But Apple, as I said before, wants to get rid of the PC market and more specifically the Windows market. Because they own one of the largest music playing programs on the market, they can manipulate a huge population who use PC’s. To do so, they change up iTunes’ files (except those that must allow it to run on Windows) to make it act differently on Windows and ultimately upset PC users and to buy a Mac. I am just saying it’s not running all correctly because Apple built it to run badly on Windows, so don’t go blaming your PC. But as to answer your question, try reinstalling it. If that does not work, consult an Apple technician and tell them that you use Windows 7.

Hi everyone I would like to know what is the best version of linux for my Atom N450. And please give reasons by the way what is the latest model of Intel Atom does anyone know? I am also not that much of an expert but I know how to download things and junk but dont get me started with the command line I have no idea what that is just heard of it. Here are my specs
INTEL ATOM N450 1.66GHZ
1024MB SUPPORT UPTO 2GB DDR2
250GB SATA HARD DRIVE 5400rpm
10.1″ DIAGONAL SD LED WIDESCREEN (1024×576)
Ubuntu linux. Or linux mint ,
ubuntuRemix.. It is for netbooks.
If you will download it, it will be .iso file, burn it to image.
Boot by cd or usb.. But you have to transfer it to usb if you want to boot/install via usb
Now my OS is Windows 7 32-Bit. Can I replace it with 64-Bit OS? Will there a be a difference in performance in general?
No performance difference.
All the talk of a 64 bit operating system is the RAM limitation. 32 bit OS’s have a 4GB RAM limit. Upgrading to a 64 bit Windows will allow you to use as much RAM as you want (theoretically speaking)
However netbooks generally don’t need that much RAM, they’re netbooks, not meant to be high performance machines, and thus their hardware doesn’t support RAM upgrades beyond 4 gigabytes.
So there is no point having a 64 bit OS to lift the RAM limitation, since you are hardware limited in the first place.
I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 with an Intel Atom N450 Processor that my family has had for about 7 months but have never opened. I’m planning to open it now and I was wondering if I can run the Steam Games that I have purchased for the PC will run decently on the Inspiron Mini. I really want to know that it will run decently but I can understand if it won’t run at all.
Nice to see you can understand if it won’t run at all
it won’t run at all.
That would largely depend on what you are using it for. This is actually a netbook so it should work well for surfing the net, word processing or watching movies. If you want to work with graphics-intensive software and 3D gaming, this computer might not be up to it.
I am looking to get a netbook soon and was reading that there is a new generation of Intel Atom processors coming out. My question is, do you think it is worth the wait to get a netbook with the Atom N450, or better to just go out and get a netbook with the Nvidia Ion graphics platform.
Thank you for your response. I was about to go and buy the 311, but I changed my mind and bought an Acer Aspire 1410 (Core 2 Solo, Intel GMA 4500MHD and 3 GB of RAM)
I own the HP Mini 311 with the Nvidia Ion and I have to say it’s really impressive. Watching videos is seamless and being able to play Guild Wars on this netbook is truly amazing.
Although the Intel Atom N450 processor is the next generation of netbook CPU ( and a great upgrade), you will not see any significant performance improvements. Rather, the benefit of this processor is able to perform at it’s peak level with very little heat or power usage, thus prolonging battery life. Intel claims netbooks running the Atom N450 can run up to 8 hours with normal use and unplugged. This is quite remarkable. However, that factor is not enough for me to wait for buying a netbook.
