Trying to dualboot Windows and Mac

Got Windows installed with boot camp, it is working alright, but I still need to install the (graphic) drivers and stuff. Downloaded 3.3, it said "The Boot Camp version currently installed on your system does not require this update." Boyfriend proceeded to download 3.2, 3.1, etc., all of which said the previous version of the BootCamp update was necessary for installation. In "Device Manager" under "Display Adapters" it refers to my card as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". Honestly, I am not entirely sure what it is supposed to say, but apparently that is not what we're looking for. So, my question is, how can I change it (is it even necessary)? My MacBook Pro is from 2010, running Lion OS, I think. I really just want to play really old low res games on this thing (to pass the time), but I have no idea how, haha. I thought it would be much simpler than this! Help me if you know what I am talking about, because I really don't! Lol. :Blushing:

You didn't give us much to go on.... which version of Windows? Also, since you're running Lion on a 2010 MacBook Pro, it must have come with Snow Leopard pre-installed. Do you have your original Snow Leopard DVD? If you do, boot the machine to Windows, insert the Snow Leopard DVD. It should start to install drivers automatically. You're missing the video driver if all you can get is VGA.
