    Hi,

    I have an Acer Laptop.
    I have checked my the "system info", it says it is x86.
    But i have also checked the acer website for updates under the model number
    and there are 64 bit drivers available for windows 7.

    So is my lap able to use windows 7 64bit???

    Thanks

  2. There is absolutely no way we can tell from what you've posted. What model
    number? What processor? And, ultimately, what do you hope to accomplish? Do
    you have >4GB of RAM? Do you actually need to run any 64-bit applications?

    Frequently manufacturers have more than one version of a laptop model, and
    some versions might be 64-bit capable, while others are not.

    If Acer has x64 Windows 7 drivers for it they must be selling it with
    x64 Windows 7.

    All you need is to buy and install the Windows 7 upgrade. Retail
    upgrades include both 32 and 64 bit disks.
