Installed Windows 32 bit ( had 64bit last time ) need help with driver

Hey guys, so I had windows 7 64 bit on my computer ( came preinstalled ) and I installed Windows VISTA 32bit! I dont have any drivers on it because I wiped my HDD. I have a ASUS G75VW-BBK5.

Can anyone help me find a driver for Windows VISTA 32bit?

Thanks.

Driver for what device or to provide what functionality?

Most needed drivers are on the Vista disc.

What did you find when you went to Asus support site and looked for Vista drivers?

Do you have any sort of disk from Asus, supplied with the laptop?

Have you attempted using the 64-bit drivers, possibly installing in compatibility mode?

A factory reset would have taken it back to Windows 7 x64......I thought you wanted to use Windows Vista x86?
