Will 64-bit Wiindows 7 work on dell inspiron 1300?

Posted by Anonymous on

  • Anonymous Jan 01, 2011

    the end result was that the CPU would not support 64-Bit...
    so i moved back to Windows 7 32-Bit and everything's fine...
    my craptop still works pretty good...
    and i'll try this again next weekend or so with my DELL Dimension 3100C (also has Windows7 32-Bit) just for fun :P

    thank you again for your time, Gents...

Bad news, it won't work, because of the low amount of RAM (it needs at least 2 gigs for 64 bit). And even if you woud tune up to 2 gigs of RAM, it will devour so much hdd, that you couldn't use much out of your 40 gigs of hdd.

Here is the official requirements for W7:

Hi.
Dell only support this laptop to XP with drivers, I therefore doubt you would even get the 32 bit version of Windows 7 to work on this

    not true ;)
    i currently DO have Windows 7 home installed and it works fine... :)

  • graeme ian hunter Dec 30, 2010

    Then why "ask the road you know"? If you have been able to get Windows 7 to work on this laptop, where there is NO driver support for the OS, you must indeed be a better technician than I.
    Given the comments mae by Totanka, which are correct in the amount of ram needed, I would ask why you would bother running an OS that must surely slow your system down to a crawl, however, if you are happy with that, your call.

You need these specs:

It should run nicely on Win7-64.
Download drivers from Dell.com otherwise NVIDIA won't run and give you a blue screen.
Hope that helps.

Won't communicate with windows 7 laptop. I have a dell inspiron laptop. Printer works with HP netbook, but not with laptop??


Use the Vista driver in Windows 7. Check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Then, download the Lexmark Z600 driver at http://bit.ly/cd4MzI(for 32-bit) or at http://bit.ly/c4xCtN(for 64-bit). Execute the file and follow the instructions in the software. Thanks.
