You will need the installation disk normally. However, if you have the reinstallation disk, it might offer you a choice 32/64bit at the start

You'll need an installation disk, but why would you want to invest the time and effort with Vista. Upgrade to Win7 instead (stay away from 8).

    I've been looking into that actually, and Yes I have heard tales of Win 8.

I have an other brain teaser! bought a laptop (sony vaio) it had vista on 32bit.i upgraded to win.7 ultimate. 32bit. could it be maybe it is a 64 bit base? nota geniouse but could this be why my bat


Beginning with the release of Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit operating systems are slowly becoming extremely prevalent in today's market. 64-bit operating systems are poised to eventually replace 32-bit operating systems entirely. At the present however, 32-bit applications still vastly outnumber 64-bit applications. Luckily, 64-bit operating systems are capable of running 32-bit operating systems. In 64-bit operating systems, 32-bit applications are installed to a second program files folder, named "Program Files (x86)." Programs installed in the x86 folder can be initialized just like programs installed in the regular Program Files folder.

Open the 32-bit programs folder. Go to Start > Computer > Local Disk (C:), then click on "Program Files (x86)." Open the desired program folder. The executable file for the program will be located inside the folder. Double-click on the file with the ".exe" file extension. As an example, for the QuickTime program you would double-click on the "QuickTimePlayer.exe" file. You have now successfully run a 32-bit application in your 64-bit operating system. Hope this helps.

I have a pc with a Windows 7 home premium and i have too (formerly) a LexmarkZ 601. I need drivers for my Lexmark. Thanks for help.


Please check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Now, there's Z601 driver specific for Windows 7, however, the vista drivers work. Download the compatible driver for your operating system using the links below:
- Lexmark Z601 Driver for Vista 32-bit / Win 7 32-bit - Lexmark Z601 Driver for Vista 64-bit / Win 7 64-bit
Hope this helps. Thanks.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

32bit vista to 64bit win7


your recovery manager files should be on drive D or other partition. if not then its gone. but the operating system cd that goes with your laptop is still better than the factory default anyway but the thing is, youll need the cd everytime you want to reformat.

if i where you, il go for 32bit win 7 since your computer used to be a 32 bit vista. no worries about making the most out of your computer since win 7 eats less than vista anyway. and go for 32 bit since your laptop is made for 32 bit.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The link for the cure says that it cannot install on my computer because it is a 64 bit and it will only install on a 32 bit. What's up with that?


That is one of the quirks of using a 64 bit operating system; you need to use 64 bit programs, drivers and so on. Most stuff like that, you need to either wait for an updated version or run an emulator like virtual box with a 32 bit version of your operating system. It will run another operating system (like Win XP, Vista or Linux) within your current OS.

Software incompatibility on my acer aspire6930-6455


Well, we wont know until you try. In my opinion, your 32/64 bit issues will be solved, but you would still have the normal vista/xp compatibility issues.

But that is to be expected, like when we all upgraded from win98 to XP.

So - I would recommend downgrading to Vista 32 bit, or getting the 64bit software version of the programs you want to use.

Good Luck, and let me know what you did, and how it turned out! :)

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista


yes
if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.
