Windows 7 problem on Macbook Pro (Bootcamp Partition)

I have got a Macbook Pro 15 inch
Intel Core 2 Duo
2.53 GHz
4GB RAM

my graphics are
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
256mb VRAM

I installed windows 7 on my macbook just a few weeks ago and when i am on my mac side the sound does not work.. i have installed my snow leopard CD on my windows side and (i think) installed all the drivers and still my sound does not work.
Also when i try to play some games like GTA 4 the graphics are limited to a very low on 800X600.

Can anyone help me solve this problem (getting the sound working and all the graphics side up to date)?

There might be someone who has a similar configuration to yours that may be able to help, but unfortunately I can't. In the meantime, have you tried looking at Apple - Support - Discussions - Boot Camp to see if your issue has been addressed? You might need to post your query there.

I had a similiar problem on my Mac Mini (mid 2010) because I used my Mac OS X (Snow Lepord) installation disc and not the one Mac OS X disc that shipped with the product. The shipped one cured the problem.

Also, there is a Bootcamp 3.1 update on the Apple support side (x32 and x64) which Apple recommends any Bootcamp 3.0 user runs the update.

Hi I installed Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro 9,1 (non-Retina) and installed all the drivers. While everything is perfect, I have one issue and that is with Bluetooth. While it finds devices and adds them, that's all it does. No file transfers and nothing. Can anyone help me to troubleshoot this?...
