i use to play a game called medal of honor allied assault. then i uninstalled it and lost it.

recently i fancied playing the game and reinstalled it again. when the game starts a console pups up and gives this error.


Initializing OpenGL driver
...getting DC: succeeded
...GLW_ChoosePFD( 16, 16, 0 )
...35 PFDs found
...GLW_ChoosePFD failed
...failed to find an appropriate PIXELFORMAT
...restoring display settings
...WARNING: could not set the given mode (3)
...shutting down QGL
...unloading OpenGL DLL
...assuming '3dfxvgl' is a standalone driver
...initializing QGL
...WARNING: missing Glide installation, assuming no 3Dfx available
...shutting down QGL
GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem
i had a read through the game readme and there was a section that said this.

Video Card Drivers

-Some video card drivers do not support OpenGL correctly. Typical
problems that may occur with these drivers include:

- Crashing on starting up
- Crashing when changing video resolutions
- Corrupted textures
- Garbage artifacts on screen
- Unexpected bright flashing on screen
- Unusually slow performance.

The solution is to go to your video card manufacturer's website
and download updated drivers for your card. It is highly
recommended that, given an option, you download and install
Microsoft-certified (WHQL) drivers.
thats exactly what mine does(crashes on startup).

i went to the nvidia website. ( i have a : NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 model 64/model 64 pro )
but there is so many drivers to download. i dont have a clue. i thought this would be the best place to ask about.

if you could help that would be great.

thanks.

"the installer couldnt find any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. it will now exit"
