I know i am not running the proper version of OpenGL, but it worked fine on my other driver, before I had to take it in and get a new CD Driver. Can anyone help me with this? thanks! :D

It looks like from this line:

Vid Card Driver Status=Fail

that you may want to update your drivers (I think it's Catalyst 5.12). You can get the drivers from ATi's website. (http://www.ati.com)

Thanks, am i going to have to re-install the game, and will this give me a virus?


EDIT: Am i going to have to re-install everything on my computer for this to work?

hehe, updating your graphics drivers is as easy as downloading them, running the installer, and then restarting your computer. no other work is required. ;)

and i don't think either ATI or Nvidia could even begin to think about the bad PR they'd get for including a virus with their drivers, even accidentally or by a hacker. so, short answer, updating your video drivers will not give your compy a virus. ;)

Thanks guys, your lifesavers! :D

EDIT: Will this solve my OpenGL Problem also?

It's worth a shot, and it seems like (from the data you posted), that it should.

it should solve the OpenGL issue as the latest drivers will get you the latest version of OpenGL that your graphics card will support.

Really, when removing drivers you should clean your registry of the old ones, deleting the old ready for the new, though it isn't necessary. I'm glad you got it working again.

Careful here. You have to make sure that you're downloading the driver from a safe source (ie the official site). It's the safest place.
