You need a 64 bit capable cpu to run Windows 7 64 Bit.

Read this tutorial, if you have more questions, just ask

Clean Install Windows 7


And please fill out your computer specs :)

Can you please fill in your system specs as AddRAM has already asked to help us assist you further.

Fill in your system specs.

Do you mean you have already tried to install the 64-bit version and it failed?

Where did you get Win7? How it it being activated?

With 3gb RAM I would use 32 bit for best performance.

If you have a valid Product Key we can provide the download for you to burn to CD or flash stick.

..and once again:
To better help us to help you would you please add your systems specs? Here's the correct way to do it. :SystemInfo See Your System Specs Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add whether it is a desktop or laptop and whether self built. Very important

Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.

Your System Specs here.

After doing this your specs will be available in each of your posts.
Click on My system Specs in the lower left of this post to see how it should look.:)
Full instructions are in the tutorial.

Run this to see if your hardware will support a 64 bit OS.

I wouldn't trust the Upgrade Advisor at all. My first ever series of posts on here were due to me not being able to install Windows 7 64-bit, the Upgrade Advisor said I was good to go when in fact my system at the time could only run 32-bit. I had to sell my 64-bit upgrade and buy a 32-bit upgrade and all was fine.
