Beginning with the release of Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit operating systems are slowly becoming extremely prevalent in today's market. 64-bit operating systems are poised to eventually replace 32-bit operating systems entirely. At the present however, 32-bit applications still vastly outnumber 64-bit applications. Luckily, 64-bit operating systems are capable of running 32-bit operating systems. In 64-bit operating systems, 32-bit applications are installed to a second program files folder, named "Program Files (x86)." Programs installed in the x86 folder can be initialized just like programs installed in the regular Program Files folder.

Open the 32-bit programs folder. Go to Start > Computer > Local Disk (C:), then click on "Program Files (x86)." Open the desired program folder. The executable file for the program will be located inside the folder. Double-click on the file with the ".exe" file extension. As an example, for the QuickTime program you would double-click on the "QuickTimePlayer.exe" file. You have now successfully run a 32-bit application in your 64-bit operating system. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: can't find drivers for win 7 64-bit for lenovo y510

Hello,

Windows 7 is a new platform and every hardware manufacture is developing the driver suits for it.Meanwhile you will have to download the drivers directly from the chip manufacturers site e.g. for sound you can download it from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/.

About the chip manufacturers you can know from the Y510 page where the drivers are there for Vista or XP.

Thanks.

You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.

I need to know if my laptop will have full functionality on Win 7


HI There,

The easiest way I know for you to check for compatibility issues is the let the Windows 7 install disk do the work for you. If you load the disk, and begin the install process, you will soon be at a window that offers you an automatic compatibilty check and resulting report with instructions.

Why don't you give that a try after visiting the Sony VAIO support site listing the Drivers and Downloads for your machine under the OS you intend to install, in this case W7 64 Bit. If you see a full compliment of drivers for your VAIO that covers all its hardware, your upgrade will likely have a good chance for success. If the site Doesn't seem to have much of anything for W7 then I'd be very hesitant to go for the upgrade unless you really take the time to look up a number of blogs for your machine and see if all the correct drivers can be collected BEFORE beginning.

Best Wishes

Can't find drivers for win 7 ultimate x64


According to Sony, your Vaio isn't eligible for Windows 7 upgrade. You could look at your device list and search individually for the new drivers, but if Windows hasn't spotted what you have and been able to load something that is at least compatible if not correct, then chances are slim. Never hurts to look though.

Need to upgrade Vaio FW235J from Vista to Vista Ultimate


Vista drivers are Vista drivers. As long as you are not doing anything regarding the 32-bit/64-bit line, everything should work fine. The 32-bit Vista driver model doesn't change with the specific flavor of Vista. The same thing with the 64-bit version. So if the drivers work in the 32-bit version of Vista Home Premium, they will also work unchanged in the 32-bit version of Vista Ultimate. And if you are doing an in-place upgrade, you don't need to even try to reinstall the drivers anyway.
