    Well many of the user who are using ASUS based mother board are facing similar problem. I have also heard that root cause of this problem is ASUS Xonar sound card driver. I suggest you to remove this driver from your computer and try to run x32 program. I am assured that it will run efficiently. To solve the issue you have to visit the official website of ASUS drivers where you can download the driver which is compatible with Windows 7 x64. Once it is downloaded you can install it on your computer. If still the issue is not solved you have to uninstall ASUS driver from the computer on temporarily basis and contact the official service center for further assistance. They will let you an appropriate solution on this matter.

    The entire problem is happening due to the drivers of the Xonar sound card. Once you have booted Windows 7 you should open the Task manager on your computer. You have to kill HSMGR.exe and other process which look similar to it from the task manager. Basically it a part of Asus' EAX but it is broken into Windows 7. Once you killed the both process your x32 program will run the appropriately on your Windows 7 x64. I donít know have any exact solution about the termination of both the process. But I can suggest you to edit your registry to remove from your computer. You can find appropriate registry editor for this purpose from the Google. I hope it will help you to solve your problem.

    I really want to say thank you to all of you who had replied me for the suggestion. You are right there is an issue with the sound card driver of my mother board. For the time being I had deleted the driver from the computer. I am going to write about this problem to the manufacturer of the Mother board. I will definitely let you know once I get updates from the manufacturer. Thanks every one for the replying. I really want to appreciate your efforts that you have put in.
