I installed XP on my MacBook Pro using bootcamp.  Now when I boot into OS X it looks like everthing is in like 16 color or 256 color.  The display looks horrible.  Even the window that displays when OS X is booting (with the apple logo) looks messed up.  I must have done something wrong.  It looks like the XP installation has somehow tried to replace my video driver.  How do I fix?  I really don't want to have to rebuild my laptop.

Thanks.

Hi,

Could you provide:
1) OS X version
2) Boot Camp version

Try to reset pram, power down then power up holding Cmd(Apple)-Option-P-R (all 4 keys at the same time) and wait for 3 chimes.. then let go.

Did you install the mac drivers from the cd that bootcamp asks you if you want to burn?  That happened to my mac bc i never installed the drivers from the cd but after i did everything turned out ok.

Run your bootcamp assistant again, and burn a drivers disc

boot into windows and run the driver disc

boot back into mac, all fixed :)
