Windows 7: hp laptop drivers problem

windows 7 ultimate service pack 1 , 32bit
do 64 bit drivers work for 32 bit windows

i have a hp laptop which had windows 7 64 BIT , then i planned to reinstall windows
so i used two different driver backup programs (driver magician and driver genius) , and i completely backed up the drivers
then i formatted the system partition and performed a clean windows installation , but this time i installed a 32 BIT version , and when i tried to restore the drivers from the backup program itself nothing was restored , and when i tried using windows device manager to restore them it kept saying that the driver program is already up to date (although these driver programs weren't installed at all)
is this problem because i installed a 32bit windows or that's something else !!!!!!!!!!! , please help me

Windows 7 ultimate x64

hi essam tarik
i think your previous drivers supports only 64 bit os that's why after reinstalling in 32bit it doesn't work. So i prefer you to get 32 bit drivers from hp website HP® Official Site | Laptop Computers, Desktops, Printers, Servers, Services and more

i think you're right , but my internet connection is so slow , i wont download the 32 bit drivers , i will just install a 64 bit windows and install the 64 bit drivers on it
