x86 Will Have to Suffice

Installing the 64-bit version of Windows XP went completely fine, aside from not being provided with a product key and having to search around online for one. Then, once everything had finished updating and the "You need to reboot" prompts stopped popping up, I started installing drivers and programs. The first problem was with the touchpad driver, in that of the several different versions I tried, all of them said there was no device present to install the driver for. Problem two was attempting to install Styler, which ended quite abruptly in being told that it could only be installed under Windows XP, which was both amusing and annoying, so I grabbed the other CD and reinstalled the 32-bit version of the OS. Therefore, I can only hope that while it *says* there's only 2.99GB of RAM installed, it uses all four in the end, and if not, what I don't know won't hurt me.

On the good side of things, mostly everything is the same as it was before, with the exception of how my desktop is set up and the wallpaper and visual style I have applied. Oh, and a better cursor too, but that's really not important right now. I also forgot to look for a couple other things while we were out getting groceries, but I don't need one of them until the week I head to London, and even with that Sobeys might have what I'm looking for too.

It's once again after 6 in the morning though, so in interest of getting my sleeping schedule back to what it used to be, this is done right now so I can get more comfortable and (hopefully) fall asleep~
