The Latitude X200 originally was shipped with Windows 2000 or with Windows XP. So, it's not listed on the above web-page.

Hello,

After lookng at the base specifacation of this laptop, even if it was upgraded the laptop would not support windows 7. Windows XP would be the latest OS you could install.

The drivers may now be default Windows instead of original, so you could try forcing by right clicking the setup and using trouble shooting mode. Or just go to Dell support and enter service tag on their web site, then look for updated Win 7 drivers. gl

What year was dell latitude d510 introduced and does it support windows 7


  • It was introduced around 2005. It lacks the RAM necessary to run windows 7 (It has 512 MB, when you need 1 GB). So, I'm afraid this computer is not compatible with windows 7 unless you upgrade the RAM
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I helped!

Good mornning , i have dell d620 laptop (latitude) and i removed the original vista windows were on it when i bough it and installed windows 7 , i need to know is my laptop model match with window 7 or no...


All the vista drivers can be used for 7. By default, windows 7 installs all drivers except for touchpad.
You can find 32 bit version for it here
The 64 bit of Windows 7 64-bit ALPS touchpad driver from the Dell support site for a Latitude E6410 is reported to also work for D620. Give it a try.

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.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and

I am trying to install AutoCAD 2004 on my new computer with windows 7 and wont install. Any ideas?


AutoCAD 2004 and Windows 7 are NOT compatible. You will need to upgrade to AutoCAD 2010 either 32-bit or 64-bit. Even with the upgrade, there are known limitation issues.
