Would a clean install to Windows 7 64bit do it.?

I have a 64 Windows 7.I assume the drivers will all be on that.

It turned out that the chip did not support 64bit so I had to install 7 32bit.

While we are on that subject,would a usb stick that was used on a 64bit system work on a 32bit system.? The reason I ask this is because I get 'Unknown Device' showing up in the Device Manager and the stick will not work in any of the usb connecters.

Post an image of your Device Manager.
Also, the specs of your PC.
Is it still an XP OS or is it now a Win7 OS?

Strange thing is I can plug the usb mouse and keyboard in and they are fine. I am about to get a named usb stick so I will see it that is recognised.
