I have a question about drivers.
I observes that when I want to download drivers for my notebook (ACER aspire 5755G series) (in order to reinstalle win7 32 bits) the Acer site proposes me to choose between windows 64 and windows 32 bits. OK but by selecting win 32 bits and downloading drivers they all wear a name as xxxxxxwin64. Is this an error of the Acer site or these drivers are the same for 32 and 64 bits?

The problem with the driver download support site is probably because it was not yet updated as some or most drivers for 32 and 64 bit OS are just one and compatible and should be merge to avoid confusion. If you look at the driver version and size, they are of the same entry. The xxxxxxwin64 should also be changed to xxxxxxwin32/64.
