I want to connect my MacBook Pro 13" to a monitor with HDMI. It runs Windows XP through Boot Camp.

I can do this on OS X, from the same MacBook, with the same monitor; but sometimes I play a game and I need to switch to Windows using Boot Camp.

I've tried connecting it, but there's no signal and no image on my monitor. How can I set it up and running?

I'm not really sure what you're asking. Could you rephrase your question? – digitxp Aug 24 '11 at 17:55
I am using MBP as hardware. I have winXP installed from bootcamp on this MBP. I tried to connect this MPB to a Moniter, by using HDMI interface. Nothing showed on moniter. This is my problem. Hope this is clear/ – Jimmy White Aug 24 '11 at 18:01
What year Macbook Pro is this? What monitor? Are you using a MiniDisplayPort to HDMI converter? – digitxp Aug 24 '11 at 18:02
2010 MBP. Sumsung Moniter. New model I believe. Yes using MiniDisp to HDMI. – Jimmy White Aug 24 '11 at 18:04
Try updating Boot Camp. That should update the Mac Windows Drivers as well. – digitxp Aug 24 '11 at 18:07
