Some questions about Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm starting this topic in order to ask some confusing questions that i found while preparing for 70-680. Hope this will useful for other users as well.

 

So first question is this.

 

Windows 7 comes in several different versions such as Home, Professional and Ultimate. You can also run Windows 7 in 32 or 64 bit versions. If you want to install and run a 64 bit version of Windows 7 which one of the following is NOT a requirement?

 

Answers.

a) A 64 bit capable processor

B) At least 4GB of ram

c) 64 bit drivers for devices

d) Any of these

 

Correct answer is b.

 

But I always thought that 32 bit driver also will work on 64 bit Windows 7. Isn't it correct?

No, 32-bit instructions are different to 64-bit ones, for example today, my friends called me that his autodesk 2008 32 bit is not working on his 64-bit laptop with windows 7. I suggested him to buy a 64-bit autodesk to be supported by his 64-bit system

Yeah 32 bit drivers will not work on 64 bit OS.

From here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions

 

If I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows, do I need 64-bit drivers for my devices?

 

Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. Drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.

But some software will work. For example on my 64-bit Windows 7 Pro I'm using 32-bit office 2010. So I thought 32-bit drivers also should work.

Hi,

 

Few basics of hardware knowledge would help you answer the question yourself.

 

BTW read again the question is made confusing ON PURPOSE. It says which of them is "NOT" a requirement.

 

 

a) A 64 bit capable processor - Is a requirement as the instructions send to the operating system would 64 bit.

b )At least 4GB of ram - Is not a requirement as it runs smooth on 2 gb ram too.

c) 64 bit drivers for devices - Again if the OS is 64 bit, the instructions are 64 bit drivers would need to be in the same lines.

d) Any of these

 

As far as software is concerned. Read this..... http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-windows7-vista64-support-32bit-applications.htm

 

 

Cheers!

Some softwares are implemented to be run on both 32-bit and 64-bit , and Office 2010 is such that

If you anybody is went to certificate exam would say for question are familiar to these with MeasureUp(official training kit)?

Surely, none of the exam questions are similar to MeasureUP, because you are not supposed to dump the questions
