    Hello Everyone.

    I'm pretty new in this Mac-World.
    I've just recieved my Macbook some days ago. I've installed Parallels, but when i run windows it kinda miss some drivers. How do i deal with this?
    I think i should be able to play etc. Counter Strike in OpenGL?

    Procesor: 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4MB shared L2 cache
    Ram: 2GB
    Graphic: Intel GMA 950 graphic processor with 64MB of DDR SDRAM Shared with main memory2


    Anyone who can help a Mac-Newb?

    Yours
    - Lucas

    It depends on what drivers you think are "missed". In some cases Paralllels has its own drivers that superseded those installed into windows.... Video drivers I believe fall in this category.

    Hmm..

    But the only Hardware that hasn't got any driver is the graphic-card :s

    Make sure you have the DirectX box ticked (look under the Edit menu when the VM is off) and you've installed Parallels Tools (under the actions menu when the VM is running).

    Parallels supports up to DirectX 8.1

    i have now installed Directx 8.1 instead of 9.0 - But it's still like running windows without graphic-card :s
