Open GL Graphics Problem

Howdy all,

Heres the problem. Whenever i startup SOF2 or MohAA i get an Open GL problem. Apparantly my graphics card isn't Open GL compatable.

Now this is probably due to me trying to get my new graphics card to work (very unsuccessful), and have since put back in my old graphics card (which ran SOF2 and MohAA without fault).

I have updated the drivers but the problem is still there.

I haven't re-installed either games yet, could that be the problem?

Please help a frustrated gamer!

OK, can you tell us your full system specification please...

Also the operating system, win98, winXP...

Also describe how the installation of your new grpahics card was unsucessful.

No problem.

Windows XP, P3 800, 256 SDRam.

Regarding my new gfx card, it appears that my mobo (chaintech) won't take it.

Anything else?

Take a look at the open gl site for more info:click here and download the GLsetup program.

I looked, but it doesn't support XP :(

Go to > Start > Contol Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Click the + next to Display Adapters > Higlight your graphics card.

Now right click and choose unistall, then click "ok"

Restart your machine...

You shouldnt have to do anything being you have Windows XP. Now try your game if it works then you owe me £1, 000, 000 if it dosnt i would say update your graphics drivers...

If that works £2, 000, 000 please...


If non of the above works amm outta of ideas. I thought it would be the drivers.

What graphics card do you have?
Most cards support Open GL.

Powerless: Looks like i can keep my wallet in my pocket :D

PSF: It's a Riva TNT 16MB (pooh i know but it does a hreat job). I never had this problem until i tired to install my newly acquired GeForce2 64MB card.

So why now?

Did you try and run the GL setup to see if would work with your card?
