I'm trying to get a friend's laptop to work again. It will not let me see any files to find out if it has a 32bit or 64bit loaded on it. So I am hoping that the "10u" might mean something helpful. I know it's a VERY longshot, but I'm running out of ideas to find the 32 or 64 bit information that is required to create the Windows7 boot repair disk that may(or may not) help get it to stop looping to the Windows Error Recovery screen. :killcomp:  There are options I can try, but not until I can find out if it has a 32bit or 64bit.

 

  Anybody know how to find out without having to have access to the files?? Is there anyway to find out by opening up the bottom of the laptop and looking at the inards??

 

                                  Thanks for any help ya'll can offer!

Hello lulucomer:

A Google search states the Gateway hardware is 64-bit, but that's not a guarantee that the current unspecified O.S. is too.

If Windows can boot in either normal or safe mode, perhaps then this will help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218
 

If not, a Linux "LiveCD" can be employed to look into the HDD's contents for your answers.

 

I don't know what "10u" stands for either. Sorry.

 

As a pure guess, I'd say it has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed. But who knows...

HTH :)

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

unless the guy changed it since purchasing it, hard to see how it could be 32 bit OS.
