When you go from 32 bit to 64 bit, you'll need to use the Windows 7 disc to eliminate the old partition, format the new partition, then install the operating system. Once that's done, you'll also need to install ALL of the correct hardware drivers compatible with the current hardware and the new operating system..
It's usually a chore to find the new drivers for all the computer hardware and it must be done BEFORE you install the new system. Be sure to find, download, and save all those drivers to a disc before removing the old operating system. Using Device Manager while Vista is still installed will allow you to write down all the correct driver manufacturers and version numbers before they're gone.. Should you have any problem finding the correct drivers for Windows 7, or if the ones you thought would work don't, at least you can look at the Vista drivers for reference.
Hope this helps.
To start this off i am not a computer major and don't understand most of the stuff. The reason on why i want to upgrade from a 32 bit to 64bit is because i have some extra ram that is not being used. Also i want my computer to be a little bit better when playing my games. Could you tell me if my computer would work on 64 bit?
