I have a intel (R) Pentium (R) D cpu 3.00 ghz 775 socket
and in the bios it shows me the same thing that I have written above but under that it has a second option which says intel (R) em64t compatible which is disabled
so my question is it a 64 bit processor that is running an 86 bit windows xp pro

Yes correct you have 64 bit capable CPU running on a 32 bit OS.

thanks for that it had me stumped why would you run a 32 bit os on a 64 bit cpu I know it is only running 2 gig of ram so if I load up a 64 bit os it should run faster right ??? and maybe add some more ram to it for him

There will not be a noticeable difference since most applications that you run under the OS are still 32 bit!

so thanks for your help
and giving me a better under standing on this

Yes, it is dual-core. If you load a 64-bit OS, there are lots of 64-bit applications that could be run on it. It's just like dual-core vs single-core. At first there was no real advantage to dual-core because most applications were not optimized for dual-core. Now, dual-core is almost a requirement and there are several quad-core optimized applications.

hay niteowl-ovo ok so I have a windows 64 bit windows xp pro and a win 7 64 bit so I can install ether of them yes ?? and you menschen there are several quad-core applications do you mean it will take a quad core or are they just programmes that will run with it?? in the 64 bit os

Yes, you should be able to install any of the OSes you have. There are applications that are able to take advantage of 4 cores. They will run with less, but are intended to run on quad-core systems. Pentium D processors tend to run hotter and less efficiently than the newer Core 2 processors, but they do run. At the time that Pentium D's were new, most applications were 32-bit and single-core optimized, so it was hard to see the benefit of these processors. I recently upgraded a 32-bit system to a Pentium D. It has 4 Gb of RAM, so it should run Windows 7 x64 or even Windows 8. I did have to change some settings in the BIOS to enable the second core.

ok I am going to try win 7 64 bit in this and go on a search for 2 x2 gigs of ram ? e-bay I guess P/S will this take a quad-core of any kind ?

Check the specs for your motherboard. Make sure the processor you want to use is on the supported list. It may be possible to run processors not on that list, but then you are in uncharted territory. It's best to stick with a known-good combination. Next, check the power requirements for the processor you selected and check the output limits of your power supply. You want to check the individual output limits and not just the total output. Also, make sure the memory is compatible with your system. I have an Intel board that is very picky. It only likes specific chips and doesn't work with 99% of standard memory, which otherwise matches the motherboard's memory specs. Personally, I like Kingston and Micron Crucial, but there are lots of good memory brands out there.
