Microsoft has an on-line compatibility checker that will tell you if your hardware is compatible. More important to your decision will be any legacy software you can't leave behind.

As RogerR says, before i had Windows 7 i downloaded this Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, It must work for you, I found out from it that I'd need a custom install if i wanted to go with 64 bit but I have too much files to risk loosing.

So anyways, download the advisor, connect to the internet and see if its working or not.

Hope it all works out for you!

Use the Upgrade Advisor, once you are sure that you have the minimum specs, you can return here and we can decide if your computer is powerful enough to give you the full impact of all the special features or if you will just get by.

i run the program which myzr7 recommends,(securable.exe)..and this is what the program says


This processor does offer 64-bit modes of operation. This means that this system is able to run the significantly more secure 64-bit versions of Microsoft's Windows XP and Vista operating systems.

The biggest challenge for 64-bit Windows systems is the fact that existing 32-bit device drivers cannot be used by the 64-bit operating system kernel. So if you do plan to try switching to 64-bit Windows, you should be sure to have a means for reverting to 32-bit operation if your system's hardware turns out to be incompatible with 64-bit operation. Many people have reverted to 32-bit operation after bravely giving 64-bits a try for a short time.

should i move to 64?what is the pros and cons of installing 64?

You should go to 64-bit because you will be able to use all your 4GB of ram
I have also installed 64bit on my laptop and it runs fine with no compatibility issues
