Install Windows 7 64 bit OS on Dell Studio 1555

Hi

I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop that came preloaded with windows vista 32 bit. I am curious if its possible to install Windows 7 64 bit OS on this machine?

  • Are the drivers (audio, web cam, CD Rom etc) available?
  • Any implications on performance - e.g. overheating etc?
  • Any implications on recovery (just in case)?

Thanks

Hi Nakul

welcome to the community 

Would like to inform that the system has the required hardware configuration that supports win 7 however, we do not have compatible drivers on the support website. You can try installing the driver for vista 32 bit which may work.  

please let me know for further help 

Thanks & Regards

I think all of these models are compatible with Windows 7 64 bit but to be sure run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

With regards to drivers, although Dell do not have a driver set listed on their drivers and downloads page. Their range of drivers is vastly superior on their ftp website you will see they have practically a full driver set listed for WIndows 7 32 bit and Windows 7 64 bit. I have provided an unofficial set which have got several users going without problems (mostly from the ftp website). You should install in order.
