I have a Toshiba P200-RT1 with an Intel Pentium Processor T2080 (1M Cache, 1.73 GHz, 533 MHz FSB), and Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit installed.

Can I run Windows 7 64-bit on my computer?

As a consolation, 64bit does not provide many benefits unless you have 4gb of ram or more. With 1 or 2gb ram system, it can even waste more memory (some subsystems are loaded in both 32 and 64bits versions at the same times on x64) and be slower than windows 7 32bit. – mtone Jan 12 '10 at 21:59

Unfortunately, you can't, your CPU is not 64 bits capable, as described in this link.

Not sure who was fastest :( – Jeffrey Vandenborne Jan 12 '10 at 21:49

No you can't, because your processor has a 32-bit instruction set.
