I have a Centrino processor which I am also unsure if 64 bit will be compatible with it.

Hope to hear so thoughts on this issue, thanks.
If that`s not a dual core cpu then no you can`t. Google the cpu.

Thanks, I see that it doesn't have the Centrino processor listed. I looked here, http://www.intel.com/products/centrino/duo/316944.pdf and a little unsure if what I have now in my laptop would be considered dual core, since it is about 3 years old.
