Default upgrade to 64 bit

Hi, I am currently running 32 bit Vista Home Premium, but I am considering
upgrading to Vista Ultimate and the 64 bit version if I can. How do I find
out If my hardware can support a 64 bit OS? Thanks in advance,
guitardude

What processor do you have? That will tell you what it is capable of. The
Core 2 Duo, Athlon 64, and some P4's are 64 bit capable.

It is a Core Duo, meaning that it is a 32bit cpu. It cannot run x64. The
Core 2 Duo is the 64bit cpu.

In my computer properties it says:
Genuine Intel® CPU T2250 @ 1.73GHz 1.73 GHz

The processor logo tag on my case says:
Intel Centrino Duo

I don't know if this is enough info or not, just let me know. thanks for
the help,

A 2250 is a Core Duo chip which only supports 32 bit Operating Systems. You
have to have a Core 2 Duo(note the 2 in the name) chip to support a 64 bit
OS.

Anything's possible, but the expense and technical knowledge required are
beyond the average user. If you have to ask, it's not for you. :-)

You need to ask the manufacturer. The mobo chipset has to support a Core 2
cpu, etc.

Default upgrade to 64 bit

I am a student in a Computer Electronics class right now and I have been for
two years. I work on desktops day in and day out. I just don't fully
understand yet everything that is associated with processors, and I haven't
done any work on laptops. I guess the way that I really should have worded
the question is "Is it possible to upgrade the processor without voiding the
warranty of the laptop (in most situations)?"
I am a pretty technical person, just not with laptops. Thanks for your help,
and by the way, that was a pretty good assumption :-)

The processor is most likely not removable from the MOBO you would most
likely have to replace the MOBO which would be far more expensive then
buying a new laptop.
