Bought a XPS 400 new Dell about 1 1/2 years ago - 32 bit.
The CD rom drives have never worked right but could use minimally.
Finally CD Roms broke down entirely.
Called in a tech. He tried new CD Roms in my PC but they too refused to work
Tech feels problem lies with motherboard so will need new PC. Mine out of warranty.
Have a laptop with Win 7 on it - 64 bit.
Thought would just use laptop DVD drive.
Soon discovered all game discs/other discs I have are 32 bit.
Am considering now buying the new Dell.
Will they honor my request to put XP Pro on it with 32 bit or will I have to
"jump and down and argue" my cause?
If so with Dell, is there another brand PC that would honor such request?
Hope I have explained my dilemma clearly - happy to add any facts needed.
