32-bit to 64-bit transition

By mscott00

  1. I just bought a new HP Pavilion dv6500 - I bought the Vista Ultimate (apparently 64-bit version) but every time I check the OS and computer details it says its the 32-bit Operating System... Is is just a real 32 bit version of windows or is there a trick (driver or bios update) to shifting it into 64-bit mode??

    So when you type winver in a run command, it tells you that your OS is 32-bit? If so, it really is only 32-bit.

    Many manufacturers ship 32-bit OS on their 64-bit machines. As mike said, double-check your Windows version.
