Hi. I just installed windows 7 on my macbook pro 15" with the nvidea 9600 GT 256mb and the reason I installed windows was so I could play games. I am using windows 7 RC, and whenever I try loading far cry 2 it stays on window with Far cry 2 which it does when it loads. when I try playing unreal tournament 3 it says an unexpected error occured. I did a "rate my windows" thing and everything is good... except the graphics which say 1.Everything else is above 5. Im not sure if windows is using the 9400 instead of the 9600, and how do I change it? I went back to leopard and chose higher performance and reloaded windows but still bad. Any solutions? Thanks

Fixed it :) I had to manually install the 64bit windows 7 drivers from the disk. It's because I want to play crysis :P
