How to check my processor 32bit or 64 bit

    Question

  • Hi,

    Currently I am using Windows XP. I am planning to change to Windows 7 for that How can I find out my processor support 64 bit?

    I checked the following registry

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

    PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE = x86

    PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER = x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10, GenuineIntel

    HKLM\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0

    Identifier = x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10

     

    In the MSINFO32.exe showing

    Processor = x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel ~3158 Mhz

    Please advice me from the above information can I install 64 bit version of OS in my system.

     

    Ans tell me the proper way, how to find out the processor is 32 bit or 64 bit?

     

    Regards,

    Bineesh
