Autocad 2000 isn't supported on any version of Windows 10, 32-bit or 64-bit. Your best bet is to run a compatible version of Windows in a free VM (VirtualBox or VMWare Player) and install your Autocad there.

The only other solution is a very expensive piece of software from a company called Longbow that allows you to run Autocad 2000 on Windows 10.

If by "my Fujitsu laptop is 32 bit" you mean the Windows installed on it is 32 bit, then you can "turn it into 64 bit" with a clean install of 64 bit Windows. As far as I know you can't do it without formatting the Windows drive first, then installing 64 bit Windows.

For best results you should start your own thread here in the General Hardware forum (this forum). Post the full model of the laptop in the thread.
