Update Video Drivers Bootcamp

Hi there, well just recently i purchased Battlefield 3 while ea was having a $10 sale. Thing is, the drivers on my macbook pro aren't up to date and isn't letting me play. Any of you guys have some insight on how one can update to the 11.8 driver or higher. I am completely lost. Also i heard of a modded version of the mobility catalyst driver, do you think that could help if something like that exist.

Thanks again.

Don't know for Apple laptops, but on my Mac Pro and iMac i just go to nVidia and AMD sites and download latest Windows drivers and install them. It works perfectly.

I tried doing that. I have a late 2011 15" MacBook pro. But for instance, I downloaded the mobile catalyst to install the drivers but it would tell me I don't have a valid card or something like that.

Cool. But something i noticed was some of those guys were reporting back with some issues of the performance of their gaming. But either way, would going to device manager, then clicking on the amd 6770m and hitting uninstall. Would that do the job?

My pleasure. I found it a bit of a pain too first time round.
