    My suggestion is to use OSX :p

    Sorry but you're posting a vista question on a Mac board. Macrumors does have a windows forum, you might get better help there.

    Yes: Download the most recent drivers from either nVidia or AMD's homepage (depending on what graphics chipset your MacBook Pro uses) and try it again. Apple only ships old and rather slow graphics drivers with Boot Camp.

    If you have one of those dual-chipset MacBook Pros, make sure that it's using the fast 3D accelerator mode (or whatever-Apple-calls-it).

    Nobody here will be able to, nor will they truly help you. This is an OS X forum.

    Visit a Microsoft forum if you're on about Vista, as that's where you'll get all the Windows nerds with their Zunes and RROD Xbox360's.

    Use XP or Windows 7. Vista is sh**. If you use Win7, just use the Latest Vista drivers.
