32, or 64 bits, that is A VERY GOOD QUESTION !!!
I`ve had my desktop for about 2 years, and up until recently, I thought I knew it inside and out--- but boy was I wrong !!! I found out the hard way. Now listen carefully or your just going to think I`m crazy, or just plain stupid! When I purchased my pc, the documentation referred to it as EMachines Model W3115 Media Center Edition with Windows XP (SP2) AMD Sempron 32 bit, X86 based desktop PC. I like to take good care of it and as long as I don`t SCREW IT UP, it runs FLAWLESSLY!!! It seems that I was doing something wrong every time I turned around, and I couldn`t for the life of me figure out why... Turns out that I really didn`t know what it was, and was quite simply installing wrong software (updated drivers, bug fixes etc. etc.). In a two year period, I`ve gone through THREE (3) total system recoverys, two of which were caused by incorrect software that was recommended after running various system scans.
I`m still not positive about the system, it turns out I have a PC that is E-Machine, built by Gateway, and no help and support center, software scan, system diagnostic scan or even my very own system information can tell me the same thing ! One tells me I`m running Windows XP Media Center Edition, 32bit X86based PC, another tells me it`s a Windows XP Professional 64 bit ! So I`m very careful about what I install!!!
Don`t get me wrong, I wouldn`t trade it for any other system that I know of, I`m hooked up to T1.5 high speed DSL and when my baby is healthy and runnin` good, its` a real joy to fly. My Picture and graphics are really great! Not to mention, I can Download a 700 plus MB High def. movie in about a minute and ten seconds.
As I said I`m not positive what I have---I think its` a 32 bitX86, but I can`t tell you for sure. Have you ever heard of this before? If so, do you have any advice for me? I would GREATLY appreciate knowing what I`ve got. Sincerely, Jack
