    I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my MacBook Pro Penryn with the 256MB 8600m GT and have been playing Modern Warfare 2 on it for a long time running on medium settings with no lag whatsoever. However, recently, a virus was installed on my windows side and my games started to lag. I reinstalled Windows twice and have tried updating to various different drivers to no avail. Games like portal and Call of Duty 4 run perfectly well on the mac side. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Could my graphics card be defective?
    Thanks

    If you know you downloaded a virus that caused your games to lag, how can you even ask if it's a hardware problem?

    Try reinstalling your Windows installation or get an antivirus application to delete it.

    That said be careful of what you download.

    Reinstalling without formatting wouldn't help he has to format the partition.

    Or buy for 20 to 40$ a good antivirus and be more careful!

    The 8600GT is not failing in your case!
