Windows upgrade

  • I have recently upgraded to windows 10 on an old inspiron 1520.However its 32 bit running on a x64 bit processor,i have tried to clean install several times to switch to 64 bit with no success ,two questions is it even possible on this old laptop and how do I tell whitch drivers ive already downloaded there are 60 to update and I didn't really pay attention what they are I don't want to keep installing the same ones..thank you.

  • What were you unsuccessful with? Windows 10 should have most the drivers for such old hardware inbuilt or automatically obtain them via Windows Update.
