Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop

Going from 64 bit to 32 bit on Windows 7

On an Acer Aspire 5532 laptop. It came preistalled with Win7 64 bit. I know that Win7 asks if you want 64 bit or 32 bit during installation, and that the installation files are hidden on a partition on this HD.

Must I format the active partition to get the win7 installation going?
F2 gets me to the restore
F5 gets me to the BIOS

How do I start a win7 (from the begining) install?

Hello,

Ill make a big assumption here : On the bottom of your laptop there is a license key - That Key will tell you which kind of opertaing system you'll have on the hidden partition and it just might say 32bit or 64bit.

Nevertheless, disregard the top part here if it does not. Restart your Laptop, keep pressing ALT and F10 together continuously after the Acer Logo until it says somemething like "Windows is loading files". It should then give you onscreen instructions - and it might just also give you the option to choose which operating system type (32/64) you want.

On another model or also others, the Recovery DVD's that come with the laptop contain this option i know for sure. When pressing F12 on startup, (if the F12 boot menu is ENABLED under "advanced tab" in the BIOS) you can choose a device to boot up from ; Choose the DVD drive and boot from your recovery DVD - When it's done loading, you should be able to choose the operating system you would like to restore on your laptop.

Last but not least, if you have a Windows 7 Installation Disk, it will prompt you for choosing 32bit or 64 bit respectively. If you have lost the original recovery DVD's, you can request them from Acer.

Had to re install cant get drivers


Do what we all do...search with Google. If your model laptop didn't come with Win7 64 bit, you may not find any drivers for it . Then try the Vista 64 bit drivers. Many are the same as Win7 drivers.

I have Vista 32 on Acer Aspire 9410-4933. Can I install Win 7 x64 on it?


No, you won't be able to install Win7 x64 on it, because your CPU does not support the 64-bit instruction set. However, you will be able to install the 32-bit Windows 7 versions, and it should run perfectly.

Does acer aspire 4315 wire less net supports in win7 ? ?


As of the moment there is no driver support for the Acer Aspire 4315. If you have already installed Windows 7 and you can connect to a cable internet through your Ethernet Port, you can try downloading and install Driver Genius Professional which can assist you in getting the compatible driver. Since this software can detect even unknown devices.

What is the bit on my acer aspire 5570z


Your laptop is designed to use 32-bit due to its compactness, so you need to get a 32-bit version of Windows 7. Since your laptop is not designed to handle power-intensive applications such as AutoCAD, ArcGIS, or video editing, I would not recommend upgrading to the 64-bit version. You may also want to visit Microsoft's Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor site for helpful tips: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx
