Can you use 32 bit in a 64 bit computer?
I have a HP Pavilion s7700n Desktop PC with a Athlon 64 X2 (W) 3800+ 2.0 GHz processor.
And if you do use the 32 bit version will there be any problems?

No problem what-so-ever.................

...but if HP do not offer XP Drivers that could be a difficulty.

Thanks for the fast reply,
I did not think it would be a problem but I have not had a 64 bit computer before.

I am having problem with my usb port not working properly. It seem the ports work with the mouse and keyboard but does not work with flash drive.
They show up in Windows Explorer but does not show the content of the drive.

I will start a different post to address this problem.

Whoooa pardner!

Don't reload it for that.

The flash drive should work. period.

I'd suspect the drive before any other thing if the keyboard and mouse work.

I know it is not the flash drive it works in 3 other computers.
The usb ports work ok if you attach a mouse or keyboard, but of course these are simple operation.

HP does not offically support winXp .
