  1. The Great Driver Hunt

    Do we have any way of changing the Screen brightnes in XP on the MBP especially when on Batteries. It seems to stay at the last setting used when in Mac OSX. By the way my fans workf fine in XP and come on when the CPUs are pushed...
  2. Heat issues with WinXP on MBP?

    I have had XP running on the MBP 2.0 since last week and the fans do come on when the CPU is pushed to the limit. I have to say the heat is about the same for the two when plugged in. On batteries the Mac OS has better time and lower heat by throttling down the CPU's more frequently and dimming the screen which you cannot do on the XP side..
  3. XP on an imac, up and booting (no joke this time)

    I just downloaded the Acer Video drivers for the Travelmate 8200 series. It has standard ATI X1600 mobility drivers for Win XP in the set.. Unfortuneately it is sitting on the mac partition of my MacBook Pro. Will have to wait until general release of Narf's stuff.... mathur999

  5. XP on an imac, up and booting (no joke this time)

    Has anyone checked the Acer website in the support section for driver downloads. They have a lot of drivers for winXP for their Travelmate 8200 series. The series is almost identical to the MacbookPro ie. 945 chipset Core Duo T2500, WiFi a,b,g, bluetooth, ATI Mobility radeon X1600 with 256meg ram, USB2.0 Firewire, gigLan webcam etc... mathur999...
