Hi, I am planning to increase the RAM in my computer from 3G to 8G. My present OS is Windows 7 home premium 32 bit. In order to get my computer to recognise the increased memory I need to switch to Win 7 64 bit version.
What I need to know is do I need to dump all existing programs on the system then re-enter them after the O/S upgrade, or is it like changing from FATS to NTFS, where you can leave everything in place ? Also are there any hidden problems I need to watch out for when performing the O/S upgrade?
All and any advice gratefully accepted.
Hi Nontek, tells me all I needed to know including the fact that my system will run 64 bit, something I had assumed did not need to be checked.
Many thanks, I can now start getting my programs sorted out ready to reload when I have updated the O/S
