Hi, I need a 64 bit version OS. I tried with windows 10 64 and it doesn't work. Windows 10 x32 works fine.

PC specifications
Processor - Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU 3.00GHz 3.01GHz
RAM - 4GB (3.25 usable) was 3gb but 1gb was added
32-bit operating system, x64 based processor
Video card i thinks is - Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)

will any linux 64 bit work? Mint? lubuntu?
can i try live distribution and if it works does it mean it will work by installing it too?

Just be aware.. I think your system is of 2008[or there about] age If so there were many budget systems on the market back then that ,although they had 64 bit processors they were paired with a 32 bit mother board, if you have one of these, then it will only run 32 bit systems..

For 4GB RAM, I don't recommend Ubuntu GNOME. From my experience, it is bad for my system in the long run. My computer started to beep after several months. Go for Linux Mint. If you want to use Ubuntu, go for Xubuntu or Lubuntu.

Mmmmmmmm if Windows 64bit wouldn't work and 32bit does then I think you will have to stay with 32bit.

Download 64 bit distro live and see what happens.
