I currently use a Samsung R530, with Windows 7 32 bit OS, i wish to upgrade to a Windows 7 64 OS, using a 2 GB Core 2 Duo CPU, a T 6600, how do i do it? The reasoning behind this probably unwise way of doing upgrades, I that I wish to increase my 3 GB DDR 2 RAM 204 pin, from 3 GB to 8.

I also wish to change my 320 GB HDD to a 1 TB SSD.

The CPU is a 2 GB Core 2 Duo T6600, and the model code is NP-R530-Ja07UK


Thank you all kindly for any views; opinions; knowledge and experience of this kind of update.


Yours Sincerely

Fred Luck

You cannot upgrade. It is a complete re-installation that is required.


The architecture that makes these different 'bit rates' is not transferable.


Back-up, re-install Windows, restore the data.


Your machine can handle 64 bit...


But for what you'd spend on the upgrades you are thinking about, relative to the age of the machine, consider selling your old computer and buying a new one.

According to the specs, your laptop won't support more than 4 GB RAM. I am also recommend buying a new i3 / i5 machine.
