Hello PiGuy,
Open your Welcome Center and click on 'Show more details' in the middle is
System and look at System type which will tell you 64-bit or 32-bit
Operating System.

Good Luck!

Re: Vista Problems
The Dell website says Vista Home Premium, almost certainly the 32bit
version, and Dell will probably supply the restore material for a price..
ask them..

Re: Vista Problems
Hello PiGuy,

You should of gotten direction from Dell on how to create a restore disk
because most laptops will not come with a disk they figure you create your
own (cost savings). I bought an HP laptop recently and instructed to create
a "one time" restore disk.

Re: Vista Problems
you can look up the processor at the intel site.
or better yet, call dell and ask them. while you are there inquire about cd/dvd media to reinstall or restore your system.
