I am always hesitant to create new threads on sites I am not familiar with... But at this point I am fairly desperate, so if this is the wrong thread, wrong place, wrong everything, I am sorry. Feel free to flame.

I have an 08 MacBook Pro(The year before they came out with the new models) that I have recently re-partitioned after having critical errors with my windows xp(I know, upgrade)

I have recently bought Windows 7, and installed successfully. But upon finishing, I have realized that I have misplaced my driver disks, and have been unable to download the proper drives from online. Nvidia in particular.

Does anyone by chance have any suggestions, or anything along those lines?

I believe you can still get the disc from Apple, you need them for more than just this thats
why everyone will tell you to keep them in a safe and secure place.

Thats what I was afraid of. I know they are very important, thus the reason I am so upset that I misplaced them. Wasn't sure if there was a torrent floating around or what, figured it was worth the ask.

Downloading Apple drivers from torrents is not only illegal, chances are they're not going to work anyway.

Really, all you need to do is to go to Best Buy or an Apple store and buy a copy of the Snow Leopard upgrade DVD. ($29) The drivers are on there. Just insert it while Windows is running and they should install automatically.
