I did ask this question before, I know, but as a newbee couldn't find my question again.

Anyway, I have downloaded (twice) what I thought was the 64 bit version of 13.04 but when I check 'About this computer' it tells me that I have the 32 bit version.

Did your Computer With 64 Bit capable Hardware ? – Lonston Oct 17 '13 at 7:21
Hi - Yes it did. It has an AMD 64 bit processor. – John M Oct 20 '13 at 18:24

Here's the link for the 64 bit version - just to avoid any confusion.

If you download and install this, but still end up with a 32 bit o/s .. then I think its time we called Mulder and Scully out :)

Good Luck
