    Did you install the drivers using your MBP's OS X Install Disk 1?

    ok sounds and buttons seem to be working after the install from the disc, im wondering can i get the trackpad to do tap to click in windows 7 also some aero effects arent working, like being able to see the windows when i run the mouse over them in the menu bar. also this is a 64bit version

    I think Tap to Click is an epic fail on Apple's part. It didn't work for a very long time, and I have a feeling it still doesn't. :mad:

    You CAN right click though- The right click can be performed by placing 2 fingers on the trackpad and clicking the trackpad button.

    i figured out the tap to click you need to go to the boot camp control panel and select tap to click in the trackpad, i went to the invidia website and tried dling drivers for 64bit windows 7 but it gives me an error saying "no drivers could be found that are compatible with my hardware".

    sure. is there a thread devoted to drivers for this, the things i need to get going are the isight camera, using a monitor to display the laptop image and 3d aero settings

    Is the Aero interface doing it at all? Or do you have a grey bar on the bottom (instead of "see-through"). Cause I needed to do the hardware test from microsoft first. You know, the test which gives your pc a number on how well it performs. I had to do that first before I could get Aero working.

    I find those system settings a maze, so don't ask me where you can find it.:D

    ok i figured out the issue, you need to install the setup from the bootcamp off the osx cd. that will get the sound, keyboard working, then youve got to restart and go into drivers then ati then you will see a 64bit folder and run the setup file there. now aero is working, and it recognized my external monitor and thats what im one now :)
