i have a problem with the macbook pro. i installed windows xp 86x with service pack 3 on my new macbook pro 2.53 ghz and installed also some games like fallout 3, dead space and cod: waw... And everytime my macbook gets really hot and after 10-20mins. firstly the sound doesnt work and than the game crashes...i tried the bootcamp-driver, the new driver of nividia and a custom 180.48 driver...always the same problem...i installed also the efi and smc update...
Can anyone help me? thanks
