    32 bit for old Notebook?


    i did a fresh install of W10 21H1 (build 19043.928) on a Satellite C45-ASP4310FL and the system gets frozen or hangs up while working and i dont know what causes it, i ran Memory and HDD tests and they seem ok. Is 32 bit W10 version more suitable for this computer? I will download the previous 20H2 version since they say its more stable.

    Laptop specs: Intel i3-3110M, 4 gb RAM and regular HDD

    i appreciate your help

    Go into the BIOS setup on the Satellite and make sure the SATA controller is set to AHCI. Be sure to save any changes. Also, be advised that when using the Media Creation tool, the 32 bit version is typically not included by default. Watch for "Use the recommended options for this PC". When you see it, uncheck it and select "32 bit", "64 bit" or both.

    Same topic was posted at Bleeping computer as well. 32 or 64 bit for old hardware - Windows 10 Support

    regular HDD
    That is your weak link. Another 4 gigs of ram would not hurt either.

    When it froze i was running chrome with 7 tabs open (mostly text sites) a couple of media files on Pot Player, plus a word document. Maybe Firefox and VLC are less demanding? I will look for an extra Ram as advised. I also did ran a CMD Checkdisk and there was no problems in HDD. Should i update the BIOS?
