I have a Toshiba P105-S921, older laptop that has a core duo intel, a gforce go7900 video card, Intel Core Duo T2400 1.83GHz, Windows xp 32 bit. I want to upgrade it with an SSD and run Windows 7 64 bit so I can max out the ram to 4 gb. Is this possible? I tried using the Windows compatiblity program on Microsoft's site but I keep getting a try again later message from Microsoft's site and it won't even start it. Any help would be appreciated!

If your processor is 64-bit, you should be able to run a 64-bit OS. Most Core 2 Duo CPUs are 64-bit but there are some exceptions. You could try running the 64-bit Windows installer and seeing if it runs.

yes you can upgrade your ram then install win7 64. below is the spec sheet of what your system can handel for ram. you will need 1gb of ram to run windows 7. which should be preinstalled.

the SSD in not so sure about but as long as it is 12.5mm or 2.5in form factor you should be ok.

keep in mind though if your manufacturer does not have drivers for your computer for windows 7 you may run into problems there.

I was wondering about that too...all the different pieces of hardware in there. I will keep researching it. Maybe someone has done this and has gone thru the same thing. 2006 to 2012 might as well be 100 years...time flies!

The system requirements for Windows are remarkably low. 64 bit editions of Windows require substantially more RAM due to the larger primitive datatypes and addresses but it will run

keep in mind if they have vista drivers for your computer most of those will work on 7 with no problem if the installer works correctly. retrofitted xp drivers are ify at best.

It was the Core CPUs (no '2', just plain 'Core') that were 32bits and mobile-only.

IIRC, Core-2 heralded Intel's full-scale adoption of x64 extensions across all product lines.

Prescott P4/Celeron are the only ones I can think of with x64 support only on certain specific models which either required looking for specific letter suffix (before Intel introduced their 'more intuitive" unintelligible model number scheme) or obscure numbering pattern that requires looking at product feature tables.

No. You can't run Windows 7 64-BIT because your computer does not have Intel 64-Bit/EM64T. Core Duo can only do 32-bit stuff.
