As far as I know, you would have to do a clean reinstall, using the 32-bit disk. I don't think you can "downgrade" without a clean install.

Reverting to 32bit is not going to solve your laptop performance issues.

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

In particular check in Device Manager to make sure you have the latest 64 bit drivers which may be cued under optional Windows Update, or are on the HP Support Downloads webpage for your model.

If there are specific performance problems, post them back and we will help you troubleshoot them.

If you still want to try 32 bit reinstall then follow these steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
