RE: the 64 bit computer system
If you are asking whether you have a 64 bit computer system, the most probable answer is 'No'.
In order to have a 64 bit computer system you should have 'Royal Straight Flush': 64 bit processor; 64 bit chipset (specialized chips on the motherboard); the RAM should be made of identical chips and extended to a max; 64 bit BIOS; 64 bit Operation System (rather than 'universal' distro); 64 bit device drivers; the APPs have to be enabled to run on 64 bit architecture.
If you are missing even only one of these - you do not have 'Royal Straight Flush'.
