    I just formatted my computer and after completion of my install of Windows 7 I noticed that it installed the 32-bit version, yet for the last year it has been running the 64-bit version!!

    I have no idea why it won't let me install the 64-bit version, I even tried another fresh install of Windows 7 but I got the same result.

    Thinking it was hardware, I ran the Windows Experience Index and then clicked "View details etc.." and it indeed did say that my system IS 64-bit capable!!!

    What am I doing wrong?? Or what am I not doing in order to reach the 64-bit install threshold? Please help and thank you for reading and responding [​IMG] [​IMG]
