Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit
Upgrading HP Pavillion DV6000 From 32 bit Vista Home to Windows 7

Hello everyone,
My first time posting here so have patience. I have searched the forum for some answers to a few questions. Would it be worth it to upgrade my HP Pavillion DV6000 from Windows vista 32 bit to Windows 7 64bit? . The warrantie ran out and the hard drive crashed the pc is five years old but is is great shape. I have looked around and as of now windows vista is more expensive than Windows 7 . What I do not understand is why would HP put a 32 bit OS on a 64 bit system ?. Was it not running correct with 64 bit OS?
This laptop has all kinds of cool devices on it webcam remote for media center light scribe including touch controls by power button I do not want to loose any of those functions. It has Nvidia geforce 7100 mobile graphcs to I just want to make pc better without loosing anything.
Anyone know where I can get step by step install for this laptop model I think what I want involves all the drivers including webcam,lightscribe,touch controls which are part of media controls ,remote control for media center?.
