    A friend has purchased a new Notebook computer. She has asked me to
    install the correct printer drivers.

    The operating system on her previous computer was Windows XP. The
    operating system on my friend's new computer is Vista Home Premium - but
    she does not know whether she has a 64-bit or a 32-bit processor.

    Lexmark have published drivers for Vista_x64 and Vista_x86. The x64
    version is cjs2300EN.exe (61.0 Mb). The x86 version is cjr2300EN.exe
    (43.4 Mb).

    Until I see the computer, I won't know which driver I should install.
    Consequently, I have downloaded both drivers.

    I shall need to find out whether my friend has a 32-bit or 64-bit
    version of the Vista operating system. I shall be grateful if someone
    could tell me the easiest way to identify the operating system.

    I intend to create a restore point, before I install the printer
    drivers. Is the procedure for creating a restore point in Vista the
    same as for Windows XP?

    Also, should I connect and switch on the printer, BEFORE I install the
    drivers - or should I run the exe files first?

    Many thanks.

  2. Right click Computer on the Start menu, select properties, on the screen
    that appears, you will find out whether she has 32-bit, most likely, or
    64-bit installed. NOTE: unless requested from the manufacturer, 64-bit
    rarely comes preinstalled on a system.
