Hiya,

Firstly, sorry about this, LoL. My sister has a athlon64 based computer with winxp home preinstalled, and she would like to know if it is the 64bit version, i do not know this rubb--- i mean software and woundered if some one could give a simple step by step guide to verifiing which one it is so i can e-mail the instructions to her as i cannot go to the comp to find out myself.

Cheers Nick

If it is the 64 bit version it will tell you on the splash screen as it boots up. Or right-click on My Computer & select Properties - it tells you what version of Windows you have on the General tab of the property sheet. If it doesn't explicitly say 64 bit then it's a 32 bit version.

Also, I have a suspicion that if it is badged as XP Home it will be the 32 bit version - I've only ever seen the 64 bit version in "Pro" guise.

Hiya,

Cheers Nigel, i will forward the infomation, Incedentaly, i searched microsofts web site for the answer and it could not understand however i phrased it, LoL. I did notice references to 64bit pro and MC edition so i think you might be right. Cheers for your quick reply.
