    I try to update my Graphics river under XP on my Macbook Pro with a XP partition. Running a nVidia GeForce 8600M GT.

    Thing is, Apple made this impossible as far as I can understand it. I need to contact or download the driver from the manufacturer of the Graphics Card, which is Apple. Apple gave me 101.xx drivers with Leopard. nVidia has 169.xx drivers out for this card.

    How can I update to these drivers? Does anybody know? :confused:

    Get the drivers from here: http://laptopvideo2go.com/
    They supply a modified INF file that works with the 8600M.

    Note that the card may run out of Apple's specifications and you should know what you're doing.

    Thanks for the link. I have done this and tried it. Tho it totally screwed up my fps in all games and slowed down the entire machine. So I'll just stick with what I got for now... :)

    Thanks anyways.
