Does a 64 bit OS generate more heat than a 32 bit OS on the same machine?

Hi All,

My friend’s Acer Aspire 5100 LT failed not long after I set it up with a fresh 64 bit Win7 install. It ran fine for years with 32 bit Vista on it. Coincidence, or does a 64 bit OS run hotter than 32 bit on the same CPU, therefore over-taxing the older MB and\or other components?Thanks,
