    I had a similar issue with BT 64 bit on my Dell Lattitude with an NVIDIA NVS 140m. The 32 bit version is working great. I would start there. Unless of course there is a particular need for 64 bit. I haven't found one in Linux yet. MS Windows is another story since I have 4GB memory on my laptop and 8 GB on my desktop.
