    Which Mac and video card is it?

    Have you installed the Boot Camp drivers? Which version?

    have you tried using the OEM drivers if they are available?

    Macbook pro 15" i5
    4 gigs and 320 gigs

    i did install the drivers, but what are the oem drivers?
    the program just spazzes like when I try to draw walls the cursor will put like a lot of them everywhere? then freeze and crash

    The "real" GPU in your Mac is an Nvidia 330m, so you would get the latest drivers from Nvidia. The ones that ship with Boot Camp are far from the latest/best, and Revit may be seeing them as "non-standard".
