I have Windows XP on my computer. How can I tell whether I have 32-bit or 64-bit on my Windows XP? Thank you very much. Murrar

Right-click on My Computer > Properties > General tab. What does it say under System?

It says Windows XP, Service Pack 3. It doesn’t say whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit. Murrar

In that case you have 32 bit.

If you had a 64 bit version of Windows it would specifically say so.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
3. Click the General tab. The operating system is displayed as follows:
* For a 64-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version < Year> appears under System.
* For a 32-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional Version <Year> appears under System.
Note <Year> is a placeholder for a year.


Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

95%n or more of us do not need or want 64 bit, there are system and software issues. Certain components will not work and many apps do not like it either! The only people that need 64 are those that do very intensive work and must buy or build the machine to work with 64, a couple of gamers I know tried it and could not rip it of their machines quick enough!

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
