Not a chance. X64 requires 64 bit drivers.

What is the make and model number of your computer?

Regarding the various Windows 7 versions, there are mainly two catagories. 32 bit and 64 bit windows.

For a given device, if your windows is 32 bit, you need a 32 bit driver. If the windows is 64 bit you need a 64 bit driver. It does not matter whether it is Starter, Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate the drivers are same.
