Default upgrade to 64 bit


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.

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

Is it possible to upgrade the processor in a laptop? Thanks for all 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.

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

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.

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,
