Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 Win 7 x64 Driver

This question has been answered by jia yong

Hi all,

I have recently purchased an Inspiron 15R (5537) that come with Windows 8. I install Windows 7 64 bits for compatibility with my other program and I couldn't get any drivers for this OS. Is the drivers for Windows 8 compatible for Windows 7? Or I need to get those drivers else where?

System Model number: Inspiron 15R 5537
Operating System   : Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits

Thanks in advance =)

  • Find your system on and change the Operating System to 7x64 ... that OS is supported by Dell on the 5537.

    Just remember that you cannot downgrade Windows 8 for free - it must be Windows 8 Pro.  In order to legally run Windows 7 on your 5537, you must have a valid/unused Windows 7 license.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I am not downgrading the Windows 8, I am dual booting Windows 8 and Windows 7. Besides, I am able to run the Windows 7, but just without the driver.

    In the, the only driver provided for 5537 win 7 is 'Dell Digital Delivery', which I feel that is not related.

    Thanks again for reply. =)

  • Thanks for all the help!

    The drivers for Windows 8 is mostly compatible for the Windows 7 I am using.

    However, the wireless network module drivers is not compatible,  but I manage to get this driver thats work fine:

    The Windows 7 works fine for now, and no more drivers issue.

    Thanks again for everyone helps.
