Same Driver will not work for win7 64 bit even if you share the printer it needs the driver for win7 64.
You will have to download the driver for win7 64bit and install in that system.

Find if windows xp is 32 or 64 bit Hp ze5270 laptop


XP was 32 Bit for almost everyone.
If you had 64 bit the operating system is call XP 64 bit edition.
Click Start>Right Click My Computer>choose Properties.
If it does not say XP 64bit verison then it is 32bit. e349a9f6-f6f5-4483-837e-8facaf1d79dc.jpg

Hi Jolito

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about the Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

The term "Drivers" is meaningless without associating it with an Operating System and a specific item of Hardware.

There is no such thing as a "Driver". There are only XP VGA LAN Drivers, Vista VGA Drivers or Windows7 Wireless Audio Drivers, Mac OSX Tiger WLAN Drivers. Mac OSX Leopard Epson Sx100 Printer Drivers, Mac OSX Lion Webcam Drivers, Linux Red Hat Midi Controller Drivers, Linux Ubuntu Media Player Drivers, etc.
Although drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Motherboard's Devices. The BIOS and the Operating System do. What the Driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Device to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with the Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them.

So when one mentions Drivers, one must also mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of 'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Device will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.

This M5305 was designed only for Windows 2000/XP Home edition/XP Pro

M5105: only for Windows 2000 / XP HE (32 Bit) / XP Pro (32 Bit)

m5309: only for Windows XP HE (32 Bit) / XP Pro (32 Bit).

M3510: only for Windows 2000 / XP HE (32 Bit) / XP Pro (32 Bit)

M5312: only for Windows 2000/XP HE (32 Bit)/XP Pro (32 Bit)

The drivers for all devices on all these laptops for only these Operating Systems listed here are freely available and can be downloaded from the eMachines Official Support Site for Drivers and Downloads.
If you are looking for Windows XP (64 Bit), Windows Vista or Windows 7 Drivers for these Laptops, you are wasting your time.

If your Operating System is among Windows 2000/ Windows Home Edition (32 Bit) and XP (32 Bit), then the Drivers for it can be easily downloaded from here:

When downloading a printer driver from HP you will need to ensure that you are selecting the correct OS (eg. Windows 7) and the appropriate version (eg. 64 or 32 bit operating system). These drivers are different and using one on the other will not work.
Windows XP drivers also will not work properly in a Windows 7 environment and the majority of Windows XP drivers are 32-Bit.

Hi i am using hpdv6767tx after installing windows 7 my bluetooth driver stoped working.


The DV series laptopis not supported for Windows 7, HP decided the model is too old to support it....however since Vista and Windows 7 share a common platform, try searching for the Vista driver. Make sure to put into the search parameters either a 32 bit or 64 bit operating system. I have a lot of success using the Vista drivers for the DV6000 and DV9000 series laptops with Windows 7.

copy and paste the entire link below to your browsers address bar. Choose the operating system from the drop down menu, search for the driver from the list.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
