    My Toshiba Satellite Notebook C660/01C PSC0LA-01C01H came with Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit installed. I later upgraded to Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

    This supports a maximum of 4 Gb RAM.
    The Celeron Dual-Core T3500 CPU supports 64-bit processing according to the Celeron and C660 specs.

    Will the other hardware and firmware -- data bus and BIOS, etc. -- support 64-bit memory addressing if I install Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. CAN I even install Win7 64-bit?

    Regards,
    Hedley

    Of course you can install Win7 64bit. It is supported and you can find all drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba download page .

    Check it out.

    The Celeron Dual-Core T3500 supports and understands the 64bit instruction set.
    You can use Windows 64bit ;)

    Thanks RandyRoberts. Although the Celeron is 64 bits capable, is the C660 motherboard capable too? Does it have a 64 bit RAM address bus, and
    chipsets and BIOS that is compatible?

    If you want to get hardware details about your notebook, why you don’t install an hardware diagnostic tool like Everest Home Edit or SANDRA Sisoft.

    By the way; as far as I know there are different C660 Satellite series on the market and there are also Win 7 64bit drivers available on the driver page.

    So tell me why an notebook manufacturer should release Win 7 64bit drivers if such system would not be compatible?
    For me it does not make any sense…
