Hello Addan,

The COA sticker on the bottom of your laptop should also have what edition of Windows it is for like below. The key is good for both the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the edition it's for.

There is no way to tell what OS is attached to a Key without other clues from the sticker.

The best thing to do is to telephone teh MS Activation Center and ask if they can help - use your local number from this list.....
