    I bought the new MacBook Pro 2.4 a week ago. I installed Vista 32bit in bootcamp. It went ok for a few hours, then it goes to a blue screen, and shuts down. Now everytime i open Vista it crashes near instantly. I think its the nvidea drivers. I can only open windows through safe mode.

    the error: nvlddmkm.sys

    anyone know how to fix this?

    Yes I believe that is from an nvidia driver. It actually takes a pretty poorly made driver to crash vista like that. Did you load the drivers from the leopard install disc?

    Make sure you have service pack 1 installed. What you can do is insert the vista DVD and press r for recovery to roll your system back. After that is done I would go to laptopvideo2go.com and download the modified Inf file for your graphics card. This will allow you to install the latest official geforce drivers.
