Re: 36 or 64 bit?



I'd boot the 32bit LiveCD version and if it sorts your problems out,
then go ahead and install it, at least until you know your issues with
the 64bit version are fixed.

The idea that 64bit performs better than 32bit is a bit of a fallacy
anyway.  There are some advantages, but generally they only come into
play when dealing with more than 2GB of mapped memory, doing lots of
math or manipulating large chunks of data that can be processed 64
bits at a time instead of 32.  For a general purpose desktop or
laptop, you'll probably not really notice much benefit most of the
time and the executables are all slightly larger too.
