os x snow leopard and windows 7 home premium 64-bit through bootcamp
 
 

I found the file you were referring too. I'm up to the point where I have to select my gpu config. The options are:
Standard Single/SLI-Win 7
Hybrid Graphics-Win 7
Hybrid Graphics/SLI-Win 7

Any clue which one I would be?

By the way I really appreciate you trying to help me out so much, I'll ttyt, let me know what you think when you get this. Thanks!

By the way I have an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T9600 @ 2.80GHz. I think that's what they are talking about, I hope that helps

That Mac thread where I found the driver says to use Hybrid Graphics/SLI mode. I believe this is because the Macbook has another lesser GPU it uses in power-saving mode.

O.O

Honestly i dont know how u were able to manage to install window 7 in a mac cpu, i highly doubt its your graphic card, becuase if it is, left for dead pops up a dialog that says ur graphic card is out dated, if you wanna check you can go to "start, then type in "DxDiag" then go to display and chip type or graphic card, if its a old one it might be the problem, but mac arent good with games, if you like gaming u i recommend for you to get a pc

Macs have been using Intel CPUs for a while now. They are now basically the same hardware as a PC. A lot of Mac users now dual boot with OS X and Windows.

It wasn't a problem with his graphics card, his card works fine, the problem was he didn't have the correct driver for the card installed. Windows didn't recognize the card and installed a generic VGA adapter driver. Don't bother posting if you aren't going to even read the thread and see that the problem was solved. There is no need to post another useless just get a PC thread.
