I'm running XP Pro on a MacBook Pro 17" full spec jobbie, via Paralells Desktop. I can't get the graphics card to function properly... Take this link for example: http://local.live.com/?mkt=en-gb When I connect via XP Explorer & the 3d mode, I get an error regarding hardware acceleration. I've checked it all out within Windows & all's set correctly, but it just won't work. Is it something to do with 3d acceleration not being compatible with Parallels? Also, I have some presentation software called EasyWorship that requires DirectX support to run animated slide backgrounds from within XP - this doesn't work either. Is DirectX still unsupported in Parallels? Help please! Otherwise very impressed with the software. Runs Windows better than any PC I've ever owned. If I can crack this graphics problem it'll make the joy complete! Thanks in advance to all who can help... Tim.
