    Wndows 10 x86,x86 based PC but x64 based processor,can it go x64


    Hello,
    I have a 32 bit windows 10 and x86 based pc but x64 based processor,originally it was a windows 10 64 bit and x64 based pc but my hard drive broke and got bad sector,it got fixed my a computer fixer but he installed 32 bit instead of 64 bit,i have a windows 10 x64 installtion media but when i run it it says it cannot run on my pc,i really wanna go back to 64 bit because only 2.60gb of my ram is usable out of 4gb

    It could be because of some driver or other HW but if processor is 64bit (and it is), 64bit OS should run on it without problems.

    Also i think there is a problem with my RAM,windows 10's 32 bit ram limit is 4gb but why only 2.60gb is usable

    You will need to do a clean install of the OS in order to move from 32-bit Windows to 64-Bit Windows. You need to backup your data, install the OS, re-install all of your programs then restore your backed up data.

    64bit OS would use a bit more RAM than 32bit anyway but you would also need to do clean install of Windows, can't just upgrade. It would be best to delete all partitions first and start with clean disk.
