64-bit drivers for Win 7

Hello,

 

I did a clean install of the 64-bit Windows 7 Pro on my Y530, and I'd like to update some drivers that worked with my original Vista installation. I checked Lenovo website and I've found only 32-bit drivers for Win 7. Will these work on a 64-bit OS?

 

Thanks!

Yah, thats weird, why they dont put the 64bit drivers.

 

I use Y450, and they have Win7 64bit drivers. Many of them same driver with the 32bit version, but some different.

 

You can use this site to check (its for Y450 though, at least you have a clue).

You can download and install drivers for Vista 64 bits. it will work on Win 7 64 bits.

While that may be true for some drivers it is not true for all of them.  The Vista 64-bit Conexant High Definition Audio driver failed to install on Windows 7 64-bit.

For Conexant High Definition Audio, for Win7 you can use the 32bit for 64bit, its the same driver.

The posted Win7 32-bit driver causes my Y430 to freeze up after logging in 2-3 boots after installation.  When I remove it, the freezes go away.
