Windows 7: How to Upgrade to 64-bit OS?

PC not fully shutting down

Not that it's a huge deal, but I just wanted to update this thread. Everything went pretty much as planned -- replaced the PSU & CPU, then added a GPU card and RAM. Everything works great and it accomplished what I needed it to -- supply my 9-yo with a workable system until a more extensive upgrade is necessary. So yes, everything is working great, HOWEVER, the PC doesn't seem to fully shut down. Whenever I click 'Shutdown', it always gets hung up at the very end and the fans remain on and won't turn off unless I perform a hard shutdown and hold the power button on the tower for a few seconds. It doesn't have me too worried because every time I start it back up, it doesn't give me any sort of error / warning stating that it didn't shut down correctly. I googled and reset the bios, etc., but it still does it. I'm thinking about going back to my old PSU and seeing if it still does it with that one. Anyway, suggestions are welcome, but I at least wanted to finish out this thread! Thanks everyone!

Any issue going to the E8500? I have a a6400f which I use for my daughter minecraft server and testing different things. With the current E2200 it does not support virtualization and there are a few things I would like to test out. I can get a E8500 for next to nothing but want to make sure there are known issues.

Thanks

Hey there! No issues whatsoever that I can tell. Everything is running smoothly with no glitches.

However, I'm still having the shutdown issues that I mentioned above, but I'm not sure how a GPU could have anything to do with that. I even did a clean vista install, put the old RAM back in, and even put the old PSU back in, and STILL the same problem. I guess the I could always remove the graphics card and see if that fixes the issue, but again, why would that have anything to do with the fans remaining on after shutdown.

Just going by memory, their was a program or bios that would keep the fans on after shut down until the cpu cooled to a certain temperature.

Just a thought from my 3 brain cells.
