    Recenly got myself a Macbook Pro and installed Vista 32bit on it. Runs great (although the fans start blowing quickly and hard in Vista compared to OsX) but I do have one problem: when I play games (HL2, Fallout3...) the games tend to crash after a few minutes (the application itself, not the laptop)

    I tried installing (modded) drivers, updating all I can update but the problem remains. Only thing I have not tried is re-installing Windows, but not sure if that would even solve my problem.

    Temperatures measured with HWMonitor seemed pretty normal to me (cpu max 62°C, gpu around 82°C).

    Do your event logs say anything specific about the crashes?

    Nothing that makes any sense of should help solving the problem; I do read some negative things about the trackpad update here, I'm reinstalling (Windows7) right now, and gonna try to not install the trackpad update and see how it goes.
