Windows 7: Windows 7 Concern

Here's what I found. If this is your laptop, Windows 7 x64 will run on it just fine. If the system has 3 GB of memory installed, as suggested by the link, you'd have little reason to consider or need to switch.

Yes, I believe that is what I have. Just curious, would x64 be better to have than x32?

All things being equal, if you were installing to a modern (read that as current) laptop, I would say go 64 bit for certain. That being said, if you plan on using your older laptop for some time and it has being running fine on 32 bit, I see no compelling reason to change.

So I assume it's ok to follow through with putting Win7 x64 on my laptop made with Vista x32.

Yes, it should install and run without issue. Just make sure you get your drivers beforehand and keep them on a flash drive.

Could you explain that a little more to me? As well as possibly helping me out on getting the drivers. Thanks

If you are putting Windows 7 on the computer, than make sure you download the Windows 7 drivers for your laptop and have them handy offline, such as on a flash drive, so you can easily reinstall them once Windows 7 is installed. You definitely want your network drivers, so at least you could get the laptop online and let Windows Update find the rest.

Since you have an OEM system, you should be able to get them all from HP's website by putting in your model number. If HP's site doesn't have Windows 7 x64 drivers for you, then you'll probably have to get them from each manufacturer's site, like Intel, etc. That's an easy process, but this is why it is important to know the specs of your laptop.

I entered the product number instead of name, and there was nothing listed for Win7 drivers. Do you think that I could use the drivers that are listed for Vista 64 bit? Perhaps if I were to use those, it would just update itself for Win 7.

I'm not sure (don't remember) if this will tell you if you're 64-bit ready but it will tell you what issues Windows 7 will have doing an upgrade - Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

If you do use the tool do let us know if it says anything about 64-bit.

Thanks.
