Hi all,

May sound like a daft question but how do you know if the version of windows 7 being used is 32 bit or 6 bi? Am trying to fix my gf's pc which doesn't start up at all, she's lost all the disks and documentation I don't have windows 7 myself, thoughts would be appreciated :)

I would suggest contacting the manufacturer to see what version of Windows 7 came installed on your computer.

No need to contact your computer manufacturer. Just double-click on "My Computer"

When the system in question can't start Windows, if you can boot the computer up from something like a Linux Live CD and look in the Windows folder, on a 64-bit OS you'll find a folder called SysWOW64, whereas this won't be there if it's a 32-bit Windows.
