Some dual-CPU machines have two 32-bit CPUs. That does NOT make a 64-bit
Open a Command Prompt window and run systeminfo. It will take a few
seconds, but you should then see a long list of details about your machine.
What does it say at System Type? Mine says:
System Type: x64-based PC
Processor(s): 1 Processor(s) Installed.
: AMD64 Family 15 Model 67 Stepping 2
AuthenticAMD ~2612 Mhz
What does yours say?
