    Hi

    I just bought a new MBP a couple of days ago. I installed WinXP on Bootcamp partitioned to 91GB. I've also installed the Win drivers using the Snow Leopard disc.

    Whenever I run a program on WinXP, and then I try to switch back to MacOSX using bootcamp, the machine stalls. The screen locks up and I can't do anything. This can be any program (Norton IS, I have a game on it BattleField2). I've also tried to shutdown the machine and change it back to MacOSX. It shutdowns ok, but when I use bootcamp, it stalls.

    I've tried to install the latest version of NVidia drivers for GeForce 9400M/9600M but NVidia installer says that no device can be found and the installer just shuts down.

    Please tell me that I don't have to reinstall Windows!

    I've ran it through Windows update and have all the patches.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers
    Patrick

    Hi

    Solved it myself after some digging around. Managed to get an updated NVidia drivers for the graphics card.

    Now it works!

    PS: my MBP is now the ULTIMATE development machine!
