I have a Compaq /HP sr1834nx it has been upgraded to 4 gigs ram plus 9800 graphics card. I would like to install windows 7 64 bit builders edition . Seeing I don't have a choice 64/32 (my builder edition software which only lets me go with 64 bit) since I own the software I want to utilize it . I have purchased and additional product code for a decent price. I ran the windows 7 adviser program and after 2 hrs I gave up. I don't want to save any files but don't have the XP to install if & won't go does any one have any answer.

Your system should install Win 7 x64 just fine. You need to boot directly from the install DVD and perform a custom install. You can't upgrade from XP at all, nor can you upgrade from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS. You must do a "clean" install.
OK I still have an issue with sleep mode. I disabled it but would like to access Bios of the original mother board to address this issue. The 64 bit 7 is not compatible with the old 32 bit bios and I'm not a geek. I did have a problem with PC would go into sleep mode and had to remove graphics card to see screen to fix it, so I disabled sleep mode. But the keyboard had a sleep button that got pushed a couple of times.
My question now is how could I access the the motherboard bios without sending it into screwy mode again
