ThinkCentre S50 8183 32 or 64 bit ???

Helllo everyone.

 

I own that PC, but would like to know whether it supports a 64bit OS or not?

I tried finding out that information in its .pdf files without success.

Currently it has a Windows 7 32bit OS, but due to unavailable drivers for the recently purchased NEC SuperScript 1400 Laser Printer, I intend to install Linux.

The problem is, I've already tried that in the past without success.

I was wondering if that was not due to the 32bit Linux I was trying to install.

 

Thank you all.

why is that? later Pentium 4 CPU has Intel 64 capability, which allows the CPU to run 64 bit OS.

Yes thats true if you have Intel pentium 4 "Prescott"

you can confirm this by running CPUid program http://www.cpuid.com/

 

if that program says you have x86-64 support then you can run 64bit OS.
