    Hi i've got the c2duo 2.4 mabcook pro - and when i installed the bootcamp off the mac osx discs it works fine - you could try just getting the nvidia 9600gtm drivers off the site and installing them as the 9600 is the only card windows will see...

    Are you using the mac osx disc when you boot into windows 7???

    if not then you will need to do this - as this installs all the drivers needed such as the trackpad and also what drive you want to boot up off - otherwise you will have to hold ALT down at power on to switch o/s.
