Specs: Windows 7 , i7; 3.07 GHz; 12GB
I have a intelR coreTM i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07 GHz 12.0 GB DDr3, 64 Bit desktop; running Windows 7 Professional.
The, of course, is me = Computer ignorant.

The specific problem is that I have a "never used" Konica Minolta Magicolor 2480 MF, Multi-function Laser Printer that Konica does not provide 64 Bit Drivers.

I think I need a 32 Bit Laptop in order to be able to use this awesome Laser Printer, right?

I'm poor; I'm Disabled living on SSD. My disability is, at the minimum, Attention Deficit. I'm confused and don't know what to do?

Not much of a choice...
Either get Windows XP 32 bit version and downgrade the computer operating system, or get a compatible printer for Windows 7 64bit.

I'm not aware of a "bridge" that exists to make a 32 bit driver work in Windows 7.

The word from Microsoft has always been that a 64 bit OS must use 64 bit drivers exclusively. There has never been any provision for using 32 bit drivers. Similarly, 32 bit operating systems in the NT family have always required 32 bit drivers.

If 64 bit drivers are not available you cannot use the printer with a 64 bit OS.
