I just installed boot camp on my mbp 13 2010. After I ran the setup and restarted in was still using the default windows xp video drivers. I installed the chipset driver but when I tried to install the video driver (NvidiaGraphicsMobileXP) it said: Setup could not locate any drivers compatible with your hardware. Any ideas?

Did you insert your Leopard or Snow Leopard DVD while in Windows to install drivers as per the Boot Camp assistant instructions?

Go to the Apple site and download - install Boot Camp 3.1. See if that helps. If that doesn't help, go to the nVidia web site and download the latest XP drivers they have for your chipset.
