I was able to send an automated crash report the first crash after the 11.32 update. Each crash since then crashes and kills the entire computer until I start it with the power button. I have seen an error flash on the screen referencing the GPU. Log file was empty, now has data.Saitek yoke, throttle and rudder pedals.Lenovo P50, xeon processor, 64 GB ram, 2 gb nvidia gpu, 2 1 tb drives with plenty of space on them.HELP! I need to shoot practice approaches for a job interview. Can install 11.30 again?

The short answer to your question is NO. Unless you purposely saved the earlier version, as a total package, to a specific area before you updated then Xp11 cannot go backwards.
I am of the opinion your system is at the low end of system specifications for it to run satisfactorily. Have a look at the following link found at https://www.x-plane.com/kb/x-plane-11-system-requirements/ to compare your system.
How have you configured your saitek harware controls? Just because they may work in other "shoot-em-up" games or flight sim packages does not mean they will work in X-Plane.
You have to set them up in X-plane. No other way, Not even through your operating system. Follow the advice I have previously provided at the following link found at https://questions.x-plane.com/23742/saitek-panels-will-not-work-in-xplane-can-any-one-help-please The answer deals with two parts, firstly with Saitek instruments and then Saitek hardware.
Follow the instructions in total regarding all saitek software.
I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from down under.
The later versions of x-plane are very resource hungry and impacts on the frame rate of your system..
Although I have been told how to "back version" by my personal contact within Laminar Research I cannot remember how to do it. So, I cannot help you in that situation.
However have you tried upgrading your GPU drivers. Despite what your operating system is telling you that the driver is up to date disregard that advice and perform your own physical driver update. It has been known to work.
Also have a look at the following YouTube videos regarding settings. This may help as well. The first link can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydwXFqfQY1A and also have a look at https://www.x-plane.com/emails/your-guide-to-setting-up-x-plane-11-free-aircraft/ under the heading of
and in particular read the link that is provided (coloured blue).
Also look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsum5o9IEzw
When you view these videos pay attention to the sections dealing with graphics settings.
Also what may help attach your log.txt file so that others with a greater knowledge base than me may be able to assist in solving your frame rate drop.
To attach the file follow the guidelines as described here at https://questions.x-plane.com/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=17830136656522860642
