Windows 7: 32 bit works, 64 bit doesn't

Yes, but an x64bit processor has more gerbils in it than the 32bit does, so just the heat from all those critters would make it run hotter!

already did a memtest way back. I have 4 pcs 2 gb stick, swapped, and tried on different slots.

Is there a way to know what service went wrong during the starting up services?
Maybe it's a 64 bit driver problem.

Came from xp 64 and vista 64 before with no problems.
Already tried different ISOs from different release and still the same problems.

I only got windows 7 64 bit to work once and that's when I used a beta build before 7600.

xeth,

Do you have any other video card you can try, like an old PCI video card with a standard 15 pin D connector to the monitor.. for the install with 2gb ram.

Then if you get it installed & running smooth. You can put the ATI card back in

No USB devices attached.
Will try with an old AGP card or PCI card if it works. But why would this be a problem? The card is very popular.

Some video cards just seem to be a problem on install, once win7 is fully installed & they are put back in with the right drivers, then they are fine also. Confusing, yes
