    Hello al Windows users on Mac.

    I was curious to see which graphic drivers people are using for a MacBook Pro 17 using Windows XP ?

    I an using NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT version

    If anyone is using the same driver are you experiencing any blue screen crash with code B8?

    Not sure if you're using the boot camp drivers or not, but I always install the latest drivers from the Nvidia site on my Mac Pro and have never run into any problems. I'm pretty sure it's safe to go that route.

    You can't quite do that with the laptop video. You can find newer drivers at

    I think you'll need both the driver install and the modded INF file to get it to install on the MacBook Pro.

    I use the latest stable release (as in the release based on the latest official nVidia drivers).

    There are often newer drivers that are betas, but I prefer not to experiment that much. :)
