    Good way to catch peoples attention. no but srsly, i finally got my sound to work over at bootcamp, (Snow leopard)
    But i can't seem to open counter strike at all!

    So because your trying to run an operating system in an unsupported configuration, it's the fault of the O/S?

    It's just like the people that berate the Hackintosh, you get the results you do based on what your trying to do.

    Sounds like you have two options, buy yourself a true PC to run Windows on, or find a game that runs on a Mac.

    Thats one of the big downsides of Mac's, software compatibility, and availability.

    Next time use a topic that is actually related to your question. Anyway, what do you mean you can't open CS? Details. What happens?

    As for the F1-F12 buttons, right-click the Boot Camp icon in the notifications area (the icons next to the clock) and choose options. Click on the Keyboard tab and make sure the box is checked. Looks something like this:

    EDIT: Ok, wait, did you ever actually install the Boot Camp drivers?


    Learn to spell and stop putting yourself down.

    What are you talking about? And where did he saying anything about it being Windows 7's fault?

    The 64bit drivers install by opening the Snow Leopard disk in Windows with Explorer. Go into the folder drivers/Apple and install Bootcamp64.msi as an administrator. If there are compatibility issues right klick and select the compatibility option on the .msi file.

    Sounds like a fresh reinstall of Windows would fix your woes.
