Windows 7: Win 32bitpro as well as Win7 64bit pro How to uninstall win 32bit ver

11 Aug 2013   #11

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)

I advised you in the other thread to Wipe the HD clean & Format it. Therefore none of these previous installations should effect the New install of Win7

If you want to go to 32-bit you would need to wipe the hard drive and then reinstall the 32bit version .

Win 7 32

by the way I have no reason to keep 32bit - I thought maybe there was a conflict between 32 and 64 - as a reason why my keyboard doesn't work

You will need to go to the Dell support site for your laptop model and download the drivers for it from Dell.

It's unlikely a conflict between the two bit versions, though we can help you remove one if you want to test it that way first: Post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image.

It's more likely you haven't installed the drivers for some devices or have performance Updates which apply that are not yet installed. Enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then run all available Important and Optional Windows Updates. After requested reboots go right back and Check for Updates again, until there are no more. Then check Device Manager if any Devices are in error, import them from the Dell Support Downloads webpage for your tag number.

If these fail and you want to reinstall follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to get it perfect. During the actual Clean Install Windows 7 Steps 7 and 8, delete all partitions except Dell Tools, create and format new as desired for Win7 and any storage in the Unallocated Space. Before reinstall you can test running Dell Diagnostics Utility - How to Run the to see if it will run and check your hardware over. If so save that partition during reinstall, but you can delete all others since Factory Recovery will not run and System Reserved will be cut out after reinstall.

Win 7 Pro 64-bit 7601

if you run the program in this tutorial and automatically upload the results in your profile as said in the tutorial, someone can help finding latest drivers for the actual components from the component's manufacturer site (as Dell just assembles stuff, does not manufacture components)

Win 7 32

re: the disc management readings I took two snips so you could read it all.

I read on through your instructions (updates) and I snipped the two images to show the actual selections are a bit different than your description. The setting was already the top selection not my personal selection (screen 2)

I gather you are asking me to go to Microsoft's site and individually click on updates?? " all available Important and Optional Windows Updates," do you mean there's a function that does this or you want me to manually do this?

All Dell 1510 drivers have been checked at the time the 64 bit upgrade was done and the keyboard dysfunction began. And since then twice more (the tedious way) using Device manager, system by system and checking for individual updates. Maybe one or two drivers had updates and even these were very old.

Happy to do this with a bit more direction. Thanks Deb
