    Oh boy am I having problems. :suicide: Yes muggins thought my Mesh Pc should be preinstalled with the 64bit version rather than the normal 32bit and now drivers are limited for the various bits I have attached, especially my Viewsonic VX912 monitor, as at the mo windows only recognises it as a plug and play monitor and no 64 bitdrivers available.

    Is there any way to revert back to 32bit?, or would it have to be a fresh install?

    Or should I wait :rolleyes: until the 64 bit revolution :rolleyes: kicks off?

    To my knowledge there has never been a downgrade/step down option supplied by MS.

    In my experience, its a fresh install im afraid.

    I am suprised though, almost all hardware has 64bit drivers available at the very least as alpha tests. I´d do some serious googling looking for your missing drivers.


    best of luck!

    In fact, just a simple search on the Viewsonic website gives you THIS as a good start :thumbsup:
