    Having this problem for ages - installed Window XP via boot camp.

    Whenever my boot camp installer installs my graphic driver which claimed to work on my graphic card Nvidia GeForce 9400m. After installing, restarted into a f'ed up screen. The colours are 4 bits and the resolutions are 680x520. Please help me with this issue. I know lots of people with the same graphic card as mine has no trouble installing the drivers =/

    Thanks in advance. sigh

    It is the same chip as the notebook so yes, it should work.

    Oh okay, appreciate your help. What if i get the error on the stuff couldn't locate a compatible driver for current hardware something like that? I've check the file 'modes' in the driver file and I can see the name of my graphic card in there though it still gives me trouble installing for certain drivers I've installed the past few days...

    If you get that then try the ones from here instead and see if you have any more luck.
