Specs: Windows 7, intel 2.66 ghz, 4gb kingston ram
Would there be any problems using a 32 bit GPU on a 64 bit OS?

Since my computer has been acting strangely ever since i got windows 7 64 bit

problems such as not being able to type in my password at startup and gpu slowing down massively.

Im considering switching to win 7 32 bit

Please help!

List the make and model # of your video card if you have one. If you're using onboard video, list that too.

A GPU is a GPU, there is no 32-bit or 64-bit. The memory used on the video card can be 32-bit, 64-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit, etc, but that has nothing to do with the GPU. If you have a video card that uses 32-bit memory, it must be extremely old.

Post your complete system specs including the make/model of your video card. The logon problem you mentioned has nothing to do with the graphics.

I suspect you don't have all the drivers for your system. It may be that there are no drivers since you suggest that you upgraded. Get the oem drivers from their web site and install.

Could be that your system is not fast enough or enough ram. Minimum ram posted at Microsoft is 2G. There has never been a system with the minimum ram for any MS OS that worked worth a darn. Double that number and that is what you need. 32 bit can run fine on 2G ram.
