You can downgrade to 32bit. you would have to reinstall windows using a 32bit cd. i would recommend it you wont see much of a difference. all programs where originally made for 32 bit. the only difference between the two is that 64bit supports more ram. like xp pro; 32bit will recognize 3.25gb as ram even if you have 4gb installed but other than that not much difference. personally i dont like any 64bit systems nor vista... but with 32bit you will be able to run a wider range of programs with no problem

What is the procedure to install a 32-bit softwares in to my laptop(windows 7,home premium,64-bit) ?


Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Windows 7 64bit does run programs that will run on windows 7 32bit, see here

How Windows 7 / Vista 64 Support 32 bit Applications

BUT not ALL 32bit programs will run on Windows 7!!! There are many programs that will run on Windows XP and before that will not run on Windows 7. IF you had Windows 7 Pro version (or upgrade) there is a program you can download from Microsoft that will simulate an XP environment to allow programs to run called "XP MODE".
Try to install the 32bit software first. If installation not succeed, it would be better if you first look into a newer version of the program you want to run.You have to consider that a newer version of your program might not be that much more expensive than upgrading to pro, and with the newer version, usually comes newer features.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

How can I install my Lexmark P915 printer to my vista O/S laptop


Unplug the printer usb cable from your computer. To install, I suggest you use the Lexmark P915 printer software you can download from the Lexmark website. But check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. For 32-bit, click on this link: http://bit.ly/9MpwNB. For 64-bit, click on this link: http://bit.ly/d4tR3d. Download and install. Follow the instructions carefully. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Do you get any error messages? Try Downloading the updated drivers and install them. Make sure you download the drivers for 64-bit vista OS. Now if it still doesnt work let me know.

Just bought a new Dell computer with 64-bit Vista Home Premium. My problem is, when trying to install my printer's drivers, it says it's not compatible with a 64-bit operating system. I checked the website...


That is a problem I have run into myself. If there are no drivers available from the Printer manufacturer then you are stuck. Try looking at your printer manufacturer website for updated software, not drivers. Sometimes the solution is is in the Factory software.

I think you have stumbled onto the problem Windows comes in two versions...32 bit and 64 bit. It sounds like you have a new laptop with 64 bit operating system, where as your old system was 32 bit. You can confirm it by going to Start >Control Panel >System and look for the line System Type under System section. It will tell you what type it is. Look at your Office package and it will most likely say 32 bit on it.

Here's a link to Microsoft which will explain the difference and answer many questions.

You can run a 32 bit technology OS on a 64 bit technology platform.

It will run pretty fast.

You just can't run a 64 bit technology OS on a 32 bit technology platform, though the 64 bit OS is recommended on a 64 bit platform.
