Yes. It was the BIOS upgrade that fixed it. W64 boots faster too.
My computer is about two years old and the motherboard upgrades for it are already hidden deep in the recesses of Intel's legacy section.
The real treat is having Vienna Suite open so smoothly inside VE. Before I fixed the Bios, this was not working properly in W64. I want to compare Vienna Suite to Altiverb on my W32 platform. I like Altiverb, but it does not run on aW64 system.
Thanks again everyone for your help. It was a matter of narrowing it down.
I'm glad it's finally working properly. BIOS updates are always one of the first things I do when troubleshooting problems. WXP x64 is using the full 64 bit capabilities of the computer which is why you can run 32 bit and not run into problems.
Altiverb needs a x64 version. I would really like to purchase it but won't until they finally move into the 64 bit world.
