I use a Dell GX620 running Windows 7 Home Premium /86.The Processor is an Intel Pentium D.

I was unable to accept the Win 10 upgrade offer because my computer would not accept the download. I am now unable to use a new printer because the controlling software will not load. The error message was 536870141.

Could this be caused by the Bit mismatch, the OS being 32 bit and the processor 64 bit.

Doubtful.  First I challenge you to reconsider the "upgrade" to Win10.  You should research it first. There's a lot to know.


Second I'd recommend running a system restore and see if that fixes it.

go into control panel and un-install that printer.  reboot.  next re-install that same printer and windows should detect it again because the .INF and .DLL files will probably still be on the hard drive.  see what that does.  if not go to the website for that printer and download the driver:  Canon, Lexmark, Dell, etc...
