Sir how do i'll know if my processor is 64 bit or 32 bit? My processor is Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2140 @ 1.60GHz. And also I want to know what is the bit of my operating system installed. Is there any way how would I know those things? Because I'm afraid of the possibilities that my processor's bit is not the same as operating system bit. Although what if that happened, is it bad?

No it is not bad, you are most likely running windows xp 32 bit do you have service pack 3? Also yes your processor supports "intel 64" or 64 bit operating systems, http://www.intel.com/products/processor/pe...-core/specs.htm yours is the last one on the list E2140 :thumbsup:

So it means what whatever the bit of my processor, it is nothing to do with whatever operating system bit I would like to install in my pc? Ok now I get it. I thought it has conflict with each other. :thumbsup:

Thank you for your assistance sir. :flowers:

yep and with older non 64bit processor you CANNOT install a 64 bit os on a 32 bit only processor but you can install both on a 64 bit supported processor. :thumbsup:

And You are very welcome

FWIW: I believe that any processor more recent than P4s...are 64-bit CPUs.

Any multicore CPU is 64-bit capable.
