Ummm... not to discredit you or anything, but how can you NOT know the manufacturer of your video card, but have the latest drivers installed?

Installing GLSetup is not sufficient, as far as I can tell that piece of software hasn't been updated since Sept. 2001. OpenGL support is delivered with the drivers for your video card, so you need to download the latest drivers from your video card manufacturer. Check "Device Manager" under "System Properties" on your computer, the video card should be under "Display Adapters".

Hope this helps...

Make sure that Windows is using maximum hardware acceleration (Display Properties -> Settings Tab -> Advanced -> Troubleshoot)

I have no idea if this will help you, but I've found SciTech Display Doctor to be a very useful tool in the past to help with compatibility problems. You can download a trial from www.scitechsoft.com (http://www.scitechsoft.com)
