    Default OpenGL problem.

    I know i have a bad card, but im low on cash. (please do not reply to this thred if your going to tell that my card is crap, go buy a new one.)

    K i have a Asus Radeon 7000 64MB DDR.


    Im trying to play Counter-Strike in OpenGL, but it will only let me play in Software. the problem i get when i try to change it is this.




    I tryed dling the latest drivers but it didn't work either.

    I contacted the place were i bought it, and they said i needed all the Win XP sevirce pack 2, i have talked to a few people and they said that that can not be true. and that they dont even have that on theer comp, cause it ****ed it up.



    can anyone help?

    ahh its pretty basic:

    AMD Atlhon Xp 2600+
    256MB DDR RAM

    ....not sure the exact modle of my mother bored. but this stuff was recently purchased.



    What drivers are you using?
    I had that Catalyst thing downloaded, but there was something that kept comming up about a VPU recovery thing. my firend told me to turn it off, so i did but when i tryed to use openGL it would work for like 1 min then frezz up, and i would have to retart the comp.

    so now I just have the drivers that came with it.

    Ya i brought it back thinking that there was somthing worng with the card, but they had my comp for three days, and then they told me that i need WIN XP Sev. pack 2.
    but ive been told by many people that thats BS.

    I tryed the Cats 5.1 it ran in openGL for id say about 1/2 hour then just froze up.

    and as for running D3D with that. it just gets to "****chy" and then closes out.
