    Yeah some how i got confused in all the talk about each version and not rereading the first post over, i am getting bit tired it was late.
    Not at all, it wasn't you, it was me, I wrote too much in my first question, and didn't isolate the problem in asking it. I was the one who created the confusion. But I once again thank you for trying to reach out with help. Now I know for sure, if I run into any Windows 10 issues, I will come here and know I can get professional assistance!

    Thanks and your welcome. One of your concerns was about hardware being compatible with 64bit OS. It basically comes down to the drivers for the hardware if the manufacturer has or makes 64bit drivers for it. Decent but older article.

    Think i said before there can be other reasons for this to happen, other driver conflicts or hardware conflicts or hardware issues.
    Blinking monitor was an older issue awhile back for some, try a different monitor, connection or cable also.

    Thanks, I have been thinking of trying 64 bit on this machine, and know the CPU is 64 bit ready. I am just so afraid to do so, and have everything else that is hardware in the machine be un-usable. I definitely have a pretty solid working machine for what it is, outdated, and should be happy with it and leave it at that, but believe me, I would love to try 64 bit. I do have 64 bit PCs, at my office. When I come home and use this, wow, I see the difference, but still, that being said, this machine is pretty snappy for as old as it is, 2006, 10 y/o. I can't play the latest games on here at 60 fps, lol, but for web-surfing, some video and data editing which I do for work still, it does the job.

    I feel like the article I read not too long ago, out nuclear facilities are running code for nuclear war heads using "Floppy-discs"... That is too funny! But maybe I will start a new thread being this is off topic a bit, and see what others think if I can or should upgrade to 64 bit OS. Thanks again for all your help. Amazing how generous everyone is with offering guidance and help.

    Imho you should. Considering you just performed a clean install, better try 64-bit now than later. I would for sure... Back in 2008 I got a new, 64-bit laptop, and chose Vista 32 because the problems coming with 64-bit OSes were still recent. I have been regretting this, since it turned out that even some RAM-consuming 32-bit programs would have run better if only my system was 64-bit.

    I put so much work and bought so many software programs I use specifically for work, I'd hate to loose all of them. But I do have 8 GB of RAM which could significantly beef up my performance. I will really have to think this out because on July 29, that is the end of Windows 10 FREE updates. What I might do, and I hate to rid of Windows 7 Ultimate, - maybe I'll do a clean install on the Portioned side where Windows 7 Ultimate resides. I hardly use that OS, but hate to rid of what I would call a l"Legacy" operating System... But, I could always revert back, correct?

    Hmm, maybe I should give that a try!

    Make a fresh ISO/DVD/USB , the latest version of Win10 is .420 at least on 64bit , but I have fixed several Computers for friends who could not get .318 or .420 to load either, but other updates did.


    Most 32bit software will run just fine in the 64bit environment , so really old stuff may need compatibility mode though.

    I'm going to give it a try this weekend. Forgot that some programs are backwards compatible. It has to replace Windows 7 on the other side of the partition, hate to get rid of that. I'm just wondering how a partitioned drive would handle 32 bit on one side, and 64 bit on the other, all using the same hardware. Giving a boost to get 8 GB of RAM might be worth it all, and having the Pentium D really wouldn't matter at that point. choices/decisions... Its tough being I have it working well on the 10 Pro side. and yes, I do have .420 (1511 10586.420) on the Windows 10 Pro side of the partition, 32 bit. I got the ISO and Media Tool already created. I did a clean install when I had issues doing an upgrade, probably because of that older Nvidia Card.

    I swapped out the older Nvidia graphics card for a newer one, nothing crazy, just an MSI GeForce 730 GT with GDDR5 - works fantastic and would highly recommend that specific version for older PCs - just the right $ to spend with not much trade off. Anything more, you'd be throwing money out the door, as this is perfect and specifically made for older PCs with CPUs that are showing signs of age. MSI did a great job with this,better than any of the others, and it is the only 730 with GDDR5 in it. Solved! Thanks for the help!!!
