I made a XP Boot Camp for my '08 Black Macbook and this is what I got when I loaded portal, completely sideways screen. How do I fix this? and yes, I know my GMA X3100 isn't supported but there's got to be a work around, right? I am broke and do not have $ for a newer computer or game system.

If you have the correct Intel drivers loaded for the GMA X3100 it has an option to rotate the screen. You might want to go direct to the Intel site and download their latest drivers. My 2008 MacBook uses the same graphics chipset and I remember I went to the Intel site and downloaded newer drivers.
However, that's been some time ago so you may have to do some digging.

Problem solved! The Intel Hardware manager for XP had an option for screen rotation enabled (for tablet version?) I disabled that and it works fine!

Now that I got through Portal, is there anyway (i'm guessing not) that I can run Portal 2 on my GMA X3100 video card?
