Hi I have a PC running windows 7 with a 2tb hard drive (32bit) and 8gig of ram. With a ASUS P8P67 LE B3 motherboard I have 64bit drivers but not 32 are they the same? if not where do I get the 32bit. Thanks Regor

Did you install 64 bit or 32bit? There is little point in having 8 Gig RAM with 32bit as it cannot see more than, I think, 3.5 gig.With W7 and a basic 64bit installation, both 64 and 32 bit programmes mostly run fine - the programmes that install in 32 bit show in C\ Programme Files(x86)and 64 but are in C\Programme files.Are you sure you have not got a (In my view preferred) 64 bit installation? To check, go to Start, Control Panel, System - it will show what you have.64 bit will "see" the RAM you have.

Hi Sybil1

To answer your question in somple terms, re-64 and/or 32 bit. You don't/won't have both, it's an either or situation.

I have a similar setup as yourself, 'john bunyan' says...

go to Start - Control Panel - System - and you will see what your setup is.

Mine is 'Windows 7 32 bit with 4 Gb RAM (2 GB usable)'

Your motherboard disk will have the required drivers, if not you will get them here Asus P8P67. Just need to input your operating system 32/64BIT.

Or, in Win7 right-click on Computer, then click on Properties which will also detail your particular setup.

Hi Chronus I may be abit thick which section do I download please for 32bit? Regor

It is from the Lan section. Lan.

I was hoping my second link would take you directly to the LAN section but it only goes as far as the download. So choose Windows 7 32BIT then LAN and download what you find there.

Sybil: we never did bottom out why you want 32-bit drivers? It seems strange that you have a machine with 8GB of memory, but you're running a 32-bit operating system - which can only use 3.5GB of memory.
