    x64-based processor, but x86-based PC; can I upgrade to x64 bit?


    Hi, I'm currently running a Windows 10 Pro PC with a 32-bit architecture. My processor allows for a x64 upgrade, but my system's information shows that my PC is x86 based. Can I still upgrade? I also have 6.00 gigabytes of ram, definitely enough for an upgrade.

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 1709 current update and Windows Defender/error code 0x800705b4

    Did you do a clean Install?

    If it was an upgrade i.e. your files and apps are as it was before, it is not possible.

    Please note that if the System says:

    X86 based system and X64 based processor

    It means 32 bit OS is installed where processor can handly 64 bit.

  3. Change bit architecture

    Hi, I'm currently running a Windows 10 PC with a 32-bit architecture. My processor allows for a x64 upgrade, but my system's information shows that my PC is x86 based pc. Can I still change from 32-bit to 64-bit? I do some research, they say can't change
    to 64-bit because my pc is running on x86 based-pc. .

    just want confirmation..

    Tq !

    No you cannot upgrade a 32-bit system to a 64-bit one. You can however, clean install a 64-bit system instead of the 32-bit one.

    Oh, yeah, sorry, haha. Totally overlooked that. Would my PC allow for a x64-bit architecture?
