Xps M1210 Vista 32-bit Drivers Work For Win7 32- Bit ?


Xps m1210 with vista 32 bit- will the drivers for vista 32 bit work for windows 7 32 bit? I have had very little help from dell on this one- so far from what i have found, it sounds like the drivers for vista should work fine for windows 7, but i want to be sure before i install windows 7 on this computer and end up making it useless for days because a wireless card driver wont work or something. Can anyone tell me with certainty if the drivers will or wont work for windows 7?

Dell Xps M1210 Webcam Driver Problem

I have a dell xps m1210 originally with windows xp, i upgraded to vista and later to 7, the problem is when i upgraded to 7 i had problems since i didn't delete any information, after this i decided to reformat the laptop using windows7 (deleting the entire partitions) and aftet the installation of 7 i downloaded all drivers and everything was working fine, except the fan was makin a loud noise i decided to open the entire laptop and cleaned it, and put it back. After this the fan's noise quieted down, but the webcam is no longer working, it says that it needs drivers, and when i install it, at first it told me to plugged in the cam (built-in cam), after uninstalling and installing the driver a couple of times the camera got detected when installing the driver, but after this when i try to use it it says that no cam is currently installed.

When i go to devices it shows an unspecified device, usb composite device. I have not been able to find a driver that actually works, or can the problem be the cam is not compatible with windows 7, or when i opened the laptop how can i know which wire is the webcam's. When i rotate the cam the laptop makes a sound similar to when you plugged in a usb device i guess it detects the cam for a couple of seconds, what might be the problem.

Multi-boot System Win 7 64-bit & Vista 32-bit On One Hard Drive

Multi-boot system windows 7 (64-bit) & vista (32-bit) on one hard drive - do i need two hard drives?I have an existing windows vista ultimate (32-bit) system installed on a 500gb sata hard drive, partitioned into 2 partitions (c: and d:). I would like to make the system multi-boot so that i can back-track to vista if i have a problem with win7.

One issue here is that i plan on multi-booting vista 32-bit and win7 64-bit on the same hard drive without touching the d: partition of the hard drive. I don't know if this is possible, but i'm interested to see if it is.

I've done some research and have found that win7 has many compatibility modes, so maybe i don't need to worry about keeping an installation of vista on my system? I just don't want to be "caught with my pants down" if something were to go wrong with win7, like if one of my programs was incompatible or something along those lines.

If i can't multi-boot vista 32-bit and win7 64-bit from the same hard drive, can i do it with 2 hard drives having one os on each hard drive? Or, am i being much too paranoid about this and should i trust microsoft on this one that win7 will not have any large compatibility issues with my most used programs?

For reference, here are some of my most used programs: firefox 3. 5, steam, adobe photoshop (versions 7. 0 and cs3), ie tester (for web development), winamp, trillian (an im and irc program), itunes, skype, mozilla thunderbird (for e-mail), and fraps (in-game video recording software).

I know that this is a lot all at once, but does anyone see any foreseen compatibility issues with any of these programs and win7 64-bit ? I'm also worried about the compatibility of some of my drivers with win7 64-bit, but i've heard that there have been leaps and bounds made with driver compatibility on win7 64-bit (as compared to the mess it was with xp 64-bit). Is this true?

Ati Radeon Sapphire 5770 - Win 7 64-bit Asks For 32-bit Drivers

I have windows 7 64 bit. I recently changed my video card for an ati radeon sapphire 5770. I had an nvidia before that stopped working. I installed the lastest drivers from ati for win7 64 bit (version 10. 5) after uninstalling those from nvidia. Everything seems to be working fine, but windows keep telling me that there's no drivers installed for my card, even tho i can access the catalyst control center. When i click on the link that windows provide, it always lead to the 32 bit version of win 7. Is it a known problem? Is there something i can do to correct that?

Upgrading 32-bit Vista To 64-bit Win 7 Without Losing Files

I have two computers with vista home premium 32-bit oem versions on them. I want to upgrade both of them to windows 7 home premium 64-bit versions, without losing any files, folders or programs.

Can i use the same family pack license to upgrade both computers to windows 7 home premium 32-bit versions, then upgrade both 32-bit versions to 64-bit versions using the same family pack license?

Will this keep the original files, folders and programs intact? Is this a reasonable process that will get both computers to 64-bit versions? Or should i just upgrade both computers to 32-bit versions of windows 7, and live with it?

64-bit Vista To 64-bit Win 7 Upgrade Fails

64 bit win vista to 64 bit win 7 upgrade fails at transferring programs , files and settings. I'm am trying to upgrade from vista home premium to 7 home premium. I've followed all instructions and kept getting hung up at the transferring programs, files and settings stage. I have turned off my anti-virus and disabled startup items and 'hid' services.

The cursor froze and it sat for 6 hours with no activity. I then tried a clean install in which i backed up and booted from the dvd. Once again i got to the last stage (completing installation. ) And once again my cursor froze up with no cpu activity. I waited 3 hours to no avail.could this be a corrupt pre-ordered dvd? If so, who can i contact to remedy this situation?

Printer On Win 7 64-bit, Need To Access From Vista 32-bit

Printer on windows 7 64bit, need to access from windows vista 32 bit, wireless laptop over home network. I have a home network set up with a wireless router, 2 pcs hard-wired to the router, and a laptop connected via wireless connection to the router. The windows 7 pc has a lexmark 2690 printer connected to it via usb port, and the printer is shared to the network. The wireless laptop uses windows vista 32 bit, and the other wired pc is xp (32 bit) sp2.

I can connect the xp machine to the shared printer via setting up a "local port" using the host computer name and shared printer name in the port setup just fine. But, when i set up a "local port" connection on the vista laptop (wireless), any attempts to print result in an "access denied" error. If i try to access the printer via a "network printer" connection on the laptop, it does not allow the connection to be made at all.

Are there any suggestions on how to make a 32 bit vista wireless laptop connect to a shared printer on a windows 7 pc on the same home network?

Rdc And Homegroup Do Not Work - Win 7 64-bit And 32-bit Network

I am having problems connecting my windows 7 pc's, i am currently running 64 bit ultimate as my personal pc , another 2 have win 7 32-bit. I also have 3 routers on the same network, but 2 are being used as switches ( dhcp turned off) and 2 other pc's are installed with vista 32 bit ultimate and win xp pro 32 bit on my trusty laptop. The network is stable and everyone has an internet connection. The problems started when i tried to setup a homegroup with the 3 win 7 pcs. The 64 bit win 7 ultimate sees only itself in the network and i cannot set anything up in this state , i have not yet made any modifications to any pc or router and through this forum can hopefully set something up that will accommodate all pc's. I also cannot get rdc to work between 64-bit win 7 and either of the other win 7 pc's. Laptop win xp pro is wirelessly connected and has all updates to date.

64-bit Win 7 Upgrade From 32-bit Vista

I just went through a thorough effort to upgrade my desktop at home from vista 32-bit to 7 64-bit. Windows 7 upgrade advisor says the hardware is fine. I downloaded the home premium windows 7 upgrade from microscoft and paid for it. I figured out how to do a custom install and make a bootable dvd from the download. However, during installation i was expecting to be asked whether i wanted 32 bit or 64 bit. I tried several different things including booting from dvd. I got a 32-bit install and i cannot figure out how to get a 64-bit install. The product specifically says it includes both versions. How do i set the install to be 64 bit?

Moving From Vista 32-bit To Win7 64-bit

I have been trying to upgrade my core 2 duo machine that has been running vista ultimate 32 bit version for the last 3 years to windows 7 64 bit (what i run on my new laptop and love), and the whole thing has been a nightmare. I chose the clean install and also chose to format the primary hard drive. I'm not sure if it ever did the format because i never saw it the way i would on windows 2000, xp, or vista (the gui for the installation was extremely slow and unintuitive). Waiting for the installation was like pulling teeth. After about 4 hours it was around 25% done.

I went to bed hoping it'd be done by morning but no, it was around 74% done after the 11th hour. I returned in the afternoon to find that my computer was in standby mode and after waking up, it was telling me that it was preparing to run windows 7 for the first time.great! I thought. Except after i put in my computer name, system password, and the product key, computer has been frozen. I tried to restart the computer and went through the same thing, but after i put in the product key the computer just hangs. I tried keeping it on all night (after being on for 2 hours) but then if i leave it unattended the computer goes in standby mode. This is a train wreck.

After suffering through vista, i was hoping microsoft had figured things out but my computer is now a giant paper weight. I wish i could wipe out my computer and do a fresh windows 7 install but i've already paid for the upgrade and supposedly it checks to see whether xp or vista is installed (both of which i already had paid for and own) i'm thinking of reinstalling vista and trying the upgrade again, but if i can't get it to install windows 7 after that, i would be very upset and return this pos to amazon. Any ideas?  This is an older computer but it is 64 bit (core 2 duo), 6 gigs ram, 2 320 gig hard drives, decent nvidia graphics card. Has another 2 years of life in it at least.

Vista 32-bit To Win7 64-bit

I appreciate that an update from a 32-bit os to 64-bit is not possible, and so i shall have to run a clean install. Can i however, still buy an upgrade cd and use that to do the clean install, or will i have to purchase a "new version" as it were.

My processor is an intel core 2 duo (t7500) which, as far as i am aware, is 64-bit compatible. (I do have ubuntu 64-bit on it, so i can also assume so).

Also, if a 'custom install' (clean) is done, will it essentially install windows 7 as another partition and the delete the vista one, or the other way around. Seems a strange question i appreciate, but at the moment i currently have 17. 7gb free and according to windows, 7 requires 20. I could quite easily get rid of a load of content, but i'm interested in how the process works.

Vista 32-bit To A Win 7 64-bit

Okay i got the windows 7 upgrade discs from sony. The disc has 32 bit and 64 bit software in it. I'm trying to ask how can i upgrade from a 32 bit vista to a 64 bit windows 7? When ever i run the 64 bit setup i get "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x 86 (32-bit) of 64x (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. " Note: the disc is a 32-bit and 64-bit, the os (32-bit and 64-bit) is in the same disc not separate.

Trying To Multiboot Vista 64-bit And 7 64-bit

I have pre-installed vista 64 bit, and want to multiboot win 7 64 bit on 2 different hard drives. I get it installed re-boot to system selection, but there is an error message: windows system 32 winload .exe

It won't let me load win 7 only vista. I re-installed 7 with vista drive unplugged with same result. 7 is ultimate 32 and 64 bit version. Same with vista from hp. Do i have a way to do multi-boot on 2 different drives or do i need to re-partition  the vista drive to get it to work. And why does 7 setup ask me if i have x84 or x64 bit. I think it should say x32 bit or x64 bit.

Dell Xps 710 - 8gb Ram With Win 7 64-bit

Unable to get to 8gb ram on x64 dell xps 710 windows 7. Less than 6 works fine. Notice asymmetric vs interleaved and sdram speed listings change. Dell xps710 did clean install of windows 7 x64 from xp. All went well and things worked fine for a while. Decided i wanted to get more out of my x64 machine so decided to upgrade the ram from 4x1gb to the system max 4x2gb. I originally ordered the wrong ram (pc2-6400 800mhz) and when i installed them the system wouldn't even turn on.

Picked up the correct pc2-5300 667mhz 4x2gb units and after a clean install i put 2x2gb sdrams in with 2x1gb original sdrams. Machine shows 6. 0 gb installed and lists them as 667mhz and dual asymmetric. Everything works fine.

If i installed 4x2gb sdrams, the system says 8gb installed but lists them as 800mhz and dual interleaved? Won't make it through startup. Will try to do a repair but nothing works. Go back to 6 or 4 gb and things are fine? Any ideas?

Audio Drivers From Vista Won't Work

Okay, i may have given up on win7 already. Why did the install go so well with vista 32 or 64 bit?  Why didn't win7 install think that use the same drivers as vista?  If i have the windows. Old files can i reuse them for win7? My pc is a shuttle barebones built machine running 32 bit win7 ultimate, model st20g5

The problem:
1) the audio drivers for vista won't work, i've downloaded the manufacture drivers again, uninstalled the broken one in device manager and then added as legacy hardware and pointed to the hda. Inf file, then win7 bsod'd.

2) seems no matter what i can't get the drivers to install, after the bsod the audio did work for a minute until windows found new hardware and overwrote the driver i installed.

Here are the firmware details, please let me know if anyone can help find some compatible drivers.

Hardware id's:
Hdaudiofunc_01&ven_10ec&dev_0880&subsys_08800000&rev_0905

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Drivers For Ms Office Keyboard Win 7 64-bit

Dear microsoft, please release drivers for the ms office keyboard for windows 7 64-bit!Lots of people still use and love this keyboard. This is the best keyboard you have ever made, especially due to the big and enjoyable scroll wheel. Some people have arthritis and need to use this keyboard. I have tried the various "workarounds" out there (like autohotkey etc. ) And none work well, especially since i have to connect my keyboard via a usb port. Please, i don't want a workaround.could you please simply create an appropriate driver? It would be so easy!
