Did you install the 64bit drivers? The AMD64 version of XP only supports 64bit drivers (In the same way that Windows 2000 can't use 16bit DOS drivers.)

As it's 64bit, any update you apply MUST be the 64bit versions. If you manage to install a 32bit update to the 64bit version of XP, then it will stop working!

Do you mean the MS Windows online updates? If so, they won't work either at this point in time. MS aren't giving much in the way of support to the 64-bit version whilst it is Beta.
