I just bought a new computer with Windows 7 Home Premium already installed. I have been told I need to switch to 32-bit to allow some software to work. How do I do this?
Hi and welcome.Hi, I just bought a new laptop a few days ago, with Windows 7 Home Premium installed in it. But I'm not too sure why I wasn't given a choice to install it as 64 bits instead of 32 bits (the initial laptop they gave me shows that option, but due to some problem, I changed for a new one, right on spot though) And this new one brought me straight to a 32bits setting the moment I turned on the laptop.
There are some programs which I wanted to install requires 64 bits, but I can't find any way to solve it, can anyone help me with this? Many thanks!
Hi, thanks for the reply!Hi and welcome.
To my knowledge, 99.9% of all new computers are sold with 64bit windows installed unless specifically custom ordered at 32bit. 64bit hardware is available cheaply these days.
Please make sure your new laptop is what you say. Go to start and right click computer and click properties. Post a screen shot of that screen.
Can you tell us where you purchased tour computer? As it's only a few days old, I would swap it out again.
