you need to install the XP drivers.

this is the main problem here.

install the correct drivers and this will fix your problem.

but make sure that installing new drivers does not affect the Mac OS.

well i did install the right drivers...i actually got them from the mac os cd...they are found in the boot camp drivers i think they are installed right.. i really dont know what is it with windows xp....i just downloaded windows 7 to my mac and it works perfect except it doesnt support all the programs i use..i use alot of flashing software for cellphones...any ideas on how else to fix xp to work good...would xp media center work better?
Why don´t you install a virtual machine with "Parallels" software for apple machines, instead of using "boot camp"?
I installed and everything is working fine!

Also have the previlege of using both windows and apple OS at the same time!!!
