Can I use the same drivers I used for 32-bits on 64-bits?

Hi everyone,

my question is if i can use the same drivers I've downloaded from the acer website for a copy of windows 7 ultimate 64-bits. Right now I have windows 7 home premium 32-bits and I'm going to buy a W7 ultimate 64-bits copy but first I need to go for sure if I will be able to install those available drivers from the acer website in the new copy of windows 7 64-bits.

Thank you.

regards,

Janmacus

    No. 32 bit drivers will not work on 64 bit software. You will need 64 bit drivers for your hardware. check the microsoft website or the manufacturers to see if drivers are available
