Woah there skipper. Punctuation and paragraphs help a lot with getting replies.

Other than the difference in memory addressing, slight changes to the kernel, etc. there's not too much of a difference between the 32- and 64-bit O/S. Perhaps these differences are revealing a weakness in your hardware.

It's probably a long shot, but have you tested your RAM from bootable media with a program like Memtest86+?

Could be. Though you'd think that difference would translate into other having problems as well, which I haven't seen.
