Where can i download 32-bit drivers for my Dell Inspiron n5010?

Hi all
I need to change my OS from 64bit to 32bit, but all my drivers are for 64bit OS (win 7) so where can i find 32-bit drivers for my n5010 (15R) online and on Dell official website?

p.s : i searched dell.com website and seems they only support 64 bit OS (vista/7) so how on earth should i find 32 bit drivers compatible with my laptop hardware?

Thanks for Your time

First of all, you will have to perform a clean install of the OS if you want go to a 32bit version of Windows 7.. That being said, Windows should install the necessary drivers.

Seeing as Dell only has 64 bit drivers for that model of laptop (both Vista and Windows 7),

Drivers & Downloads

and with it being a laptop I wouldn't be getting drivers from anywhere but the laptop manufacturer, why are you looking to change to 32 bit Windows?

It seems some softwares have major issues with 64 bit operating systems, like those old programs we use in our courses in uni so I have to change it to 32-bit

so what can I do ? can u help me ?

Short of finding the manufacturer of everything in the laptop and seeing if they have 32 bit drivers, there isn't a whole lot you can do as Dell is only providing support for 64 bit Windows for that model.
