Post script,I think it was video intercepts used by xp but not windows 7,
but now we have something called mirroringI suppose we do not have to know
until it goes wrong? Regards Dorothy

may I pick your brains a bit more please, I know that windows 7 does not
need something XP does but do not really grasp details what is the video
interceptor and the software called dc chaining, I thought windows 7 did not
need something xp needed but,I am not sure why. When my xp desktop died, I
had put on it a video card independant of the mother board with its own
memory, I am told that is not needed on a modern computerI had to run
another product from a different stable even to do something very simple
such as use black screen white font,having a little residual vision,and got
fed up being told turn the screen off use it as if you had no sight, any
problems I had were solved not by the maker but clever individuals ,that was
luck I can understand why this topic is of importance to many on this lis.I

am sure I have used the wrong technical terms only hope you can guess what I

meant regards Dorothy

The major differences are:

1. If you can find Win 32-bit, they are harder to find.

2. Win 7 32-bit only supports 4GB of Ram or less. Win 7 64-bit supports
way more, most machines can support either 8 or 16GB, but the theoretical
limit is way beyond that.

3. Some of your hardware like printers and scanners may not work on
Windows 7. You need to check by going to the printer/scanner manufacturer
site, look under support or downloads and search for Win 7 64-bit drivers
for your specific model.
Take my advice, I don't use it anyway.

I have Jaws 12, but have reverted to Jaws 11 as 12 was crashing too

I'm afraid I need to think seriously about a new computer.

I'm still with XP Home.

Can someone tell me what would be the major difference between Windows 7
32 bit or 64 bit?
