    I noticed that other people are experiencing this problem as well, but mainly with the x64 version. I have the x86 version of Windows 7 installed, and every now and then the system freezes for a few seconds and starts working again. I tried to download and install the latest nVidia graphics drivers, but upon installing them, they only gave me the option of installing an HD audio driver (???). If anyone has a fix for this issue, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

    Not sure what is causing it, but know this apple doest let any company write drivers for macs. Stupid really the graphics is from nvidia but nvidia is not allowed to make drivers for their own hardware.

    So if you get driver from nvidia.com it wont work, you have to find modified version online. Somebody posted a link in this section. I'm looking for it right now.
