View Full Version : HL-counterstrike freezes // something with nvoglnt.dll



04-14-2003, 07:33 PM
okay, i'm a belgian and i'm trying to say this in my best english ^^

When i start playing cs(counter-strike) after a while the game just freezes and the sound repeats hisself, i checked my Systeminfo/windowserrors and it says something about the nvoglnt.dll file.
I've tried format several times, and nothing helps. I just formatted again, installed via drivers (vagpm410b) & nvidia drivers (43.45) & sound drivers (sblive!drivers).

my pc specs:
(CPU) 1-AMD Duron, 857MHz, 64KB (0% Load) .:. (RAM) usage: 167/384MB (43.49%) .:. (GFX) NVIDIA GeForce3, (Display) 1280x1024/32bit/60Hz
(OS) Windows XP Professional (5.1 - 2600), (installed for) 7h 54m, (uptime) 3h 48m 24s .:. (HDDs) 24.1G/28.4G(84.7%) free

Is there a fix for this problem or any recomends? i would give everything to fix this :>

I have the exact same problem wich appeared after i installed winxp..

07-03-2003, 12:27 AM
well, as far as i know the xp aint the one causing trouble. I have win98SE and im suffering from this too. Ive tried almost every driver there is, reformated, installed fresh windows, upgrading bios changing my video card, tips and hints mentioned in this forum, everything... and still the problem keeps coming back.
plz some1 come up w/ a solution!!!1 plz!1
my specs: AMD Athlon ~750MHz

If you rule out software, then it must be hardware.

Sounds like a heat problem. Have you considered opening your case and putting a regular fan blowing into the case?

If that fixes the problem, then you need better case cooling.

If it doesn't then you may have a motherboard or video card problem.

07-04-2003, 10:28 AM
yeh ive got that problem. Ive turned off the Nvidia helper service, tried many different drivers and turned on 2x mode but none of these work. Ive also got a powerful fan and that doesn't help at all.

If we all have the same problem it must be due to something we all have in common.

Does anyone have a ASUS A7V333 motherboard -it could be this???

I've an ASUS CUV4X-C motherboard with a Pentium III 750 Processor and an ATI RADEON 7500 video card. With Direct3D there is no problem, but it with when using OpenGL

What driver are you using? Do you have the latest from www.ati.com (http://www.ati.com) ???

07-05-2003, 01:19 PM
I've also been experiencing this problem for the past month. Reinstalls, reformats, virus checks, driver changes, etc... have not solved anything. This is on an older Tyan S1958c2 motherboard (SS7) with a K6-3 550 and WINDOWS XP.

It appears that this problem is very common w/ old motherboards. Mayby buying a new fresh one would fix the prob.

nvoglnt.dll (Nvidia's Opengl driver) doesnt even work on mine. When i want to play opengl mode in CS and other games, it freezes and on CS or on HL that it says" opengl is not supported by your videocard"
I dunno how to load it to the games. my g4 Ti4200 is giving me trouble w/ opengl.
D3D mode looks like crap.

elperryo
07-07-2003, 07:52 PM
the "open gl not supported" error it's prolly due to some bad drivers for ur video card.

I've win 98se and i've the same freezing problem, the freezing is random.

I wonder if it's really a heat problem.

V-man
07-08-2003, 06:46 AM
If after installing the drivers you still get that message, then probably HL is screwing up.

I had that kind of problem with Q2, while all other gl stuff was working fine.

Try emailing Valve or go to their tech forums.

I remember when win2k came out, HL refused to run because it couldn't identify the OS. Stupid!

07-09-2003, 11:40 AM
I've had this problem since I installed win2k, i've had it for over a year, i've changed every piece of hardware in my computer, upgrading, except the hd. I've searched all kinds of forums and topics for the solution to this and everybody that has posted it has had a diffrent system with diffrent hardware. The only common thing in this problem is that everybody is play cs. I seem to recall that it started happening to me not to long after I put 1.5 on too so that might be part of it too. All I know is this is a wide spread problem with no solution and it has to do with the software. It probably won't happen but it would be great if somebody from sierra could take a look at this and give us some hints. And don't tell ppl to get the latest drivers or there hardware is overheating cause thats not it.

This actually sounds like a problem with opengl32.dll. (it's a known issue for openGL apps like HL, Quake 3, Jedi Knight 2, Elite Force, etc; it's caused by long lines or clipping planes that extend past the window boundaries)

SP1 for XP is supposed to fix this. See MS articles Q312505, Q311838 and Q281860 for more information.

[This message has been edited by Starwaster (edited 09-25-2003).]

07-11-2003, 10:24 AM
so is it possible to just update that dll file directly to fix this problem? Seeing as I have win2k i don't think sp1 for xp will do a lot of good for me.

V-man
07-12-2003, 07:39 AM
Again with this bull**** opengl32.dll

No it's not that file. When you have your drivers installled, all gl calls are routed to the driver.

There are plenty of people, including me who are not having problems with that file.

07-15-2003, 01:25 PM
So whats the problem then? I had cs installed on my system for over 6 months without a problem and then one day it just started freezing at random during games. Sometimes 2 hours in sometimes 2 minutes. I've uninstalled reinstalled tryed all kinds of crap i've found that solve similar problems but nothing has ever worked. And agian it's not a hardware problem because i've completly changed my system and it still happens.

1) Update drivers for graphics-card.
2) Update drivers for mainboard.
3) Check ram settings in bios. They might be wrong.
4) Disable USB in bios.
5) Set AGP bus speed to some low value in bios.

I've had these problems numerous times, and I solved them all doing the things above. Maybe the hardest was when USB made it freeze, I still don't know why...
Hope it helps some of you.

It's really hard to say from what you descriebd, but it's not a software issue, otherwise CS would never run.
You said it started happening after installing Win2k? I guess it could be that so try your old OS again for while.
Try gaming alone if you were doing multiplayer. When something goes wrong with the network, the HL engine just aborts, sometimes with a message, sometimes not.

Don't bother replacing dlls, specially opengl32.dll.

07-16-2003, 03:17 PM
nobody ever listens....
Not to be rude but, Of course my graphics drivers are most up to date, my mb drives are most up to date and I have a completly diffrent mb then when this started as i stated, ram is correct, disabling usb I guess I could try but my usb is all on-board so i'm not sure if that might give me other problems, not to mention my mouse is usb, and this started before I got usb mouse so don't blame that, I'll think about trying to lower the agp bus speed, reluctently even though it should work at 4x no problem, but i'll try. thank you.
to V-man, as i've already said i've seen numerous ppl with this problem on forums with every type of windows os and nothing comes up when it stops, EVER, it just stops, sound, game, hd, mouse, everything freezes nothing works, NOTHING, no ctrl+alt+del, nothing. It's power button off time.
thanx for trying though, sorry i'm so synical but like i said i've been searching for the solution for a year and i've heard these answers over and over, nobody ever has the real answer. Like I said i'll try the agp bus reluctently, but i dont' know anybody else that has to change there agp to 2x or lower for HL, do you?

Win2k is up to Service Pack 4 so i would recommend updating =)

Mushroom,

If you've changed your MB and you've reinstalled everything cleanly...

Have you considered a video card failure?

V-man
07-18-2003, 07:11 AM
mushroom says that he has swapped out everything except the HD.

I don't think it's a hw failure cause he can use it for hours sometime. It's possibly software trouble. I have been playing those games for a long time and I know that they sometimes randomly crash (but my machine never locks up)

The best thing you can do is compare situations.
Does the lock up happen with other games? GL or D3d?
Is your power clean? Is your case cover always on? Maybe try it at someone else's house in that case.

There are plenty of factors. You just have to try one by one.

07-18-2003, 09:03 AM
thanx v,
It doesn't happen with any other games or software but this is the only game that I run in open gl. It's happened since I was at my other place, i'm in a new place now, so I think I can rule that out.
I know this is really odd, but I wasn't playing CounterStrike for a long time, I have been playing natural selection, and the lockups weren't really happening all that often and then a couple of weeks ago I went on a cs bing for a few days and it started happening more frequently agian. I haven't played cs since, just ns, and it's been calming down a little, still happens but it generaly, and I use that loosly, takes an hour or two. Also I have the same game, same version and cd-key, on my comp at work which is running xp pro and so far it hasn't happened once, but like I said I had it on my comp at home for 6 months before it started happening there. I'll mess around some more with it and see if I can figure it out. I also emailed sierra but so far all they have said is to update drivers and check my hardware.

07-18-2003, 02:53 PM
Let me chime in here, I have this same problem although slightly different.

I have a Toshiba laptop with GeForce FX 5600 card in it, and the NVIDIA Dawn Demo crashes right away when loading. It crashes in nvoglnt.dll. How embarassing for the company's demo to crash on its own video card http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/rolleyes.gif

3DMark2001 also crashes during the 2nd test (car chase - high detail). As well, UT 2003 is very unstable when loading (most of the time crashes at splash screen) but if it gets past the loading phase, it runs fine.

I've used the recovery CD's that came with the laptop to re-image back to factory defaults, so that mostly rules out it being a software issue. I've had the video card (well, mobo too since it's soldered onto it) replaced under warranty, so that ought to rule out hardware issues. Then, logically, if it's not software or hardware, then there shouldn't be a problem!!!! But there is http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif

Now if that isn't odd enough... and this will sound really weird... the aforementioned apps run fine after installing them, UNTIL I reboot the laptop. Then, they crash as mentioned. Reinstalling them doesn't help anything, btw.

Now I'm thinking it's maybe a Windows registry problem, where the first time those apps run, they create and use default registry settings, but the 2nd time when they access registry (it's only reloaded upon reboot) to get at those settings, something goes wrong...

On the bright side, there are graphical apps that run fine on my laptop. 3DMarks 2000, 3DMark 2003, Black & White. I don't have many other games to test it with.

Toshiba tech support basically give me the run-around, pleading ignorance on the issue. So I'm left with a $4000 word processor... or paperweight...

07-20-2003, 10:26 PM
I've been having this same problem with my desktop for several months now, and this is an nvidia driver and I have changed everything updated everything which makes me believe that its not a hardware problem, and it is not a software problem, but it is a driver problem. Every time I contact msi about it they give me the runaround telling me to update more and more, but I dont believe this problem will be solved until an updated version of the driver is released.

07-21-2003, 07:05 AM
If the sound is skipping and repeating like a broken record and your game freezes up then in MY experience is was a highly defragmented hard drive, sound settings problem, or the memory is cryin.

Heat can be an issue but unless you got a janky computer and some overclocked stuff its usually not.

Try to disable the sound card totally in the device manager and make NO sound available on the computer. Then go play the game. It will suck as you cant hear anything
but if you can play it for a while without it freezing then that might be the problem.

Skipping can also be caused by the paging file being too low. I use LOTS of ram 2 512
ram chips and 20% of the disk is a paging file for virtual memory.

Lastly tweaking the game and turning off lots of flashy effects improved my Half Life (mods) GREATLY back in the day.
You dont really need to see EVERY bullet hole and what not.

Then you dont get any hw acceleration and performance becomes crap.

The correct solution is for the company to release bug fixes (immediatly!) or you go to their competitor.

Actually, Im surprised something as graphically simple as SolidWorks doesnt work on your system.

07-21-2003, 01:25 PM
I'll check the paging file to see where it's at but I no longer have a sound loop when it freezes because my current sound is on-board sound, so that issue has stopped. However I the freezing has not. Let me stress that nothing else causes my computer to do this, only half-life- counter strie and natural selction; mods for half-life.
I ran 3d mark on my old system and it crashed and restarted cause the proccessor sucked but I ran it on my current system and it finished fine. I've run ut2k3, max payne, enter the matrix, all kinds of high graphics programs for long periods and it does not crash. I don't believe in any way that it is a hardware issue and I have doubts about it being a driver issue unless its a driver and software interaction issue, but then the question is why isn't there a larger number of ppl with the same problem. I'm still waiting to hear back from sierra we'll see what they say.

Have you tried to run HL in D3D?

07-29-2003, 08:04 PM
Just to tie up loose ends, I resolved my problem. It had NOTHING to do with OpenGL, or even video cards for that matter.

It was a virus.

To be specific, it was W32.Pinfi (aka "Parite") and is pretty benign as far as viruses go. It's so benign that I never knew I had it (for over 2 months) until someone told me to run a virus scan. I usually don't bother with virus scanning, I figured if I got a virus I would just cut it off at the source by reformatting. But for that to work you need to have SOME indication that you have a virus...

So my suggestion is to people on this thread, if you're like me and never bothered checking for virii (whatever your reason may be. mine was arrogance) then you may just want to do that. Can't hurt.
http://www.pandasoftware.com/download/utilities <-- free virus scanner. ain't much good, but it's free and will at least detect common virii.

08-19-2003, 05:04 AM
Ok
I had the same problem with Quake III Arena.
To fix it I had to go to NVidia driver archives and reinstall each driver until the card had the latest driver.
A pain in the arse, but it fixed the problem.

08-19-2003, 12:52 PM
get the new via hyperion4in1 if u are using a via chipset it fixed my problems and it is sayed to increase graphic performance on 3dmark drastically any questions email xyayformex@yahoo.com

08-22-2003, 08:53 PM
WOW, I am not sure if it has worked, but I have just had to best cs experience in a long time thanks to your info. First time in ages that I was able to play cs for hours and it not freeze. No more laggy 1.6 for me!!! heh. Anybody that has this problem and havent tried the via drivers, try them. I had some opengl errors after I first installed it but after a setting change, all was well. Now just to get rid of that 56k I have : \. Anyway ty very much.

OK guys, hi there. I finally figured out the problem with this Opengl AND/OR Direct3D freezing and playing the same sound over and over again. I'd just first of all like to point out that yes, sure some people fixed THEIR problem by identifying a virus or a faulty IRQ on their hardware, but the majority of the problem actually comes from the AGP - or accelerated graphics port.
OK, let's fix it then shall we?
You may have read in some forums, people saying to change your AGP "Arpeture" Setting to 4x, this worked on one of my older comps, but now that didn't with my new one. SO what have I done?
(PLEASE BARE WITH ME - INSTALLING THE LATEST DRIVERS AND DIRECTX IS NOT THE ENTIRE SOLUTION, THERE IS MORE TO IT AND I AM GETTING TO IT....)
-Install the latest Graphic Drivers (To me this would be v45 of the Detonator Drivers for my Geforce2.
-Install DirectX 9.0b
-Click START/RUN Type in "DXDIAG" and in the new window that opens up, (After it loads up)click on "Display", the Click "DISABLE" next to "AGP TEXTURE ACCELERATION". This reduces the workload on your AGP bus.

I'm just telling you all EXACTLY what I did to fix the problem, and no, Half Life has not froze once since and I've played 3 hour games last night with the new settings. (When it was freezing beforehand that night. I just mucked around with my dxdiag settings to fix it)

Now OK, I must admit this probably will not fix the problem for people with different hardware to mine, but here is what I have:
Pentium III - 450mhz
Acer Aspire 77s System
384mb RAM
GEFORCE2 MX
Onboard Sound-card
Windows 98.
ALL LATEST DRIVERS & DIRECTX.

If this has helped anybody, PLEASE let me know because I need feedback, I'm getting into hardware anyway!

GOOD LUCK!

- Con|-|olio, see you in the game

I have been having the same problem with counter-strike for a few days now. I have tried every single solution aforementioned in this forum and many other cs forums. needless to say nothing has worked. im getting pretty pissed off now. before the problem i could sit and play for hours at a time. now i cant play for 5 seconds withought the damn game freezing up. it will freeze for 10 secs or so and then work then freeze again, its not even worth playing anymore. sierra and valve have the worst service for their games. it seems to me if there are so many people with the same problem their asses should be responsible for finding the solution, not the gamers. my advice is to repetedly contact valve and sierra regarding these problems until they get off their lazy asses and find a solution, because none of the advice in these forums has helped one smidgen. but thanks anyway.

09-05-2003, 12:58 PM
It's been about 3 months since I played cs, however I play ns on a daily basis, and guess what? No freezing, not once. I'm not an expert with computers but i'm not a dumbass either and I know that this, at least for my computer, is localized specifically to cs. No other game or program has ever done this to my computer and since NS runs on the same engine as cs than I can only assume that it's not the Half-life engine and in fact is the counter-strike game itself. Whether this is a conflict between the code and my hardware or what is beyond me. I guess it's not a big deal anymore since I hate playing cs with all the hackers and what not. So my solution... Don't play cs! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif Or wait for the next release. Later

Well i have the same problem in WinXP after i installed it but in Win98se i have no problem at all i have a GF4 ti4200.

in HALO q3 and other game it dont happen
i have one time when it happened in UT2003
its really anyoing.

Might as well throw in the info on how I fixed my "error in nvoglnt.dll" problem that caused me to be without any openGL games for about 4 months.

My Set-up: WindowsXP with Nvidia Geforce 2 GTS Card

Step 1: Uninstall the current Nvidia drivers you have by going through the Add/Remove Programs menu in your control panel

Step 2: Reboot

Step 3: Run "Driver Cleaner" which is a user made program that completely deletes any driver files that are left over from the uninstall you did in, "Step 1" (http://www.driverheaven.net). Read the readme.txt file for instructions on how to use it properly (it's not hard) and donate to the creator if you can. Once it finishes cleaning your system jump to, "Step 4" http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/biggrin.gif

Step 4: Reboot

Step 5: Download the install packages for the latest Nvidia (currently 45.23) and DirectX (currently 9.0b). They both can be found on Nvidia's and Microsoft's website. Even if you have DX9.0b installed already, download the install package ANYWAY.

Step 6: Install DirectX 9.0b

Step 7: Reboot

Step 8: Install Nvidia drivers

Step 9: Reboot

Step 10: Set-up your screen back to the way you usually had it (resolution and color-depth wise)

Step 11: This is when you try to run an OpenGL without it crashing. If it doesn't crash then, "WOO-HOO FOR YOU!" if it still crashes then I apologize for wasting your time.

I've had this problem as well but onlu with Natrual Selection (HL Mod). I recently installed the Nvidia 52.16 drives that came out Oct 23. I haven't has the problem since but my framerate is much slower now (45-50 it use to be, 35-40 now). Anyone knwo why my framerate would be slower?

10-31-2003, 09:04 AM
I HAD this same problem, and I got it fixed by installing via hyperion 4in1 and the most latest nvidia drivers for my GF4 and DirectX 9b. I'm not sure if it was only one of these changes that made things work, but for your own sake, if you have this type of problem, please try these actions.!

BIG thanks to "OK LISTEN", "Con|-|olio" and "HONKER24"

I have exactly the same problem (Counterstrike freezes, repeats sound 10-15s and then shows error).

The error is the same as you had, but it says vgui.dll instead. anyone an idea what this dll is for? It is in the hl folder and I tried to replace it with several other opengl files, but then hl wont even start up.

I tried all the things suggested in these forums. I have the nevest drivers for graphik, mobo, bios ...
Tried several older drivers as well. I tried to disable several things in dxdiag, I have the refresh paatch installed etc etc. Anyone any ideas?
Software mode works well, but it's very slow. Sometimes I manage to play CS for 1min and then it crashes. And no its no heat problem. Other games play well for hours. I have read about this porblem in several forums but no one had the vgui.dll as error!?

My system:
Windows XP SP1 (all updates installed)
Notebook with Geforce 440 Go 64 MB
Pentium 4 1.8 Ghz

11-03-2003, 05:14 AM
I solved my problem. The solution is absurd in my case:
- enable EAX Hardware support in HL.
- in any case disable A3D

If you want to try to use A3D try: http://www.pro-hl.com/a3d_winxp.shtml

Here comes the strange thing:
If I disable A3D and EAX it wont work.
If I enable A3D and EAX it wont work
If I enable only EAX it works.

If I use Halflife/CS with Software accelerated grahpics both sound settings work.

Even if I disable my soundcard in system settings and play CS it crashed. With enabled EAX it works. Anyone a clue how this is possible? Will post an update if I finally resolve where the problem actually is. Maybe I need to play with the soundcard driver a bit.

Your framerate is probably slower because in all likely hood when you installed the new drivers it reset your v-sync settings and now you v-sync is on therfore limiting your fps. Or maybe the new drivers suck. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif

Fixed my problem by reinstalling Det 44.03 and clicking the two boxes in the OpenGL tab.

OK ALL...........
MANY SOLUTIONS TO ONE PROBLEM ...

Im not going to tell anyone here a specific remidy STAY WITH ME , But raqther an observation..

It does not seem to me that anyone has mentioned or even asked if this problem is with motherboards with VIA CHIPSETS...?
old new does not matter...I have an
MSI kt4a ultra
asus 128mb 8x agp gforceTI4200
1024DDR pc 2700
140 gigon 2 maxtor hard drive
Call of Duty ,,, Wolfenstein ET ,,RTCW .
the
NVOGLNT.IRC version 6.13.10.3140 is my module demon..

The above mentioned games is where i experience this error......

Yes ive done everything under the sun this is why i have the system mentioned above.
GEUS WHAT ....
same problem......
no tin new hardware you will find fix ..unless not running on VIA chips with NVIDEA grafics ...!!!
HELLO >.................HELLO>>>>>>>
ok ..
I read this on a site ...damn somewhere ...like http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp/r1067615639
this happens to be for C++ runtime errors ...which i fixed by using the drivers that came with the card (off cd..nvidea 7-28-2003 AND installed the GART for VIA )
was not untill i recently updated my MSI baord with its own utility that this problem arose again...although not C++ but same results...

LOOK AROUND WEB FOR VIA CHIPS ERRORS AND KNOWN CONFLICTS WITH .....

SERIOUS hope there to be some one who reads this that has more time or effort than I as of now...


hope i helped ..you all whoever and where-ever have always been there for support in every way possible....

AN OLD SAYING IM FOND OF...
"BUILD IT THEY WILL COME"
Haa like build the systems ...and they will come ....with everypossable angle on how to fix their damn intollerant creations !!!

OK I'LL GO BACK UNDER MY DESK NOW !

you need java enabled on your computer
so you can see video graphics better.
I had that and I went and downloaded free java,
the site is http://java.com (click the green box-that says Get Now Download Free)

When i start playing cs(counter-strike) after a while the game just freezes and the sound repeats hisself, i checked my Systeminfo/windowserrors and it says something about the nvoglnt.dll file.
I've tried format several times, and nothing helps. I just formatted again, installed via drivers (vagpm410b) & nvidia drivers (43.45) & sound drivers (sblive!drivers).

my pc specs:
(CPU) 1-AMD Duron, 857MHz, 64KB (0% Load) .:. (RAM) usage: 167/384MB (43.49%) .:. (GFX) NVIDIA GeForce3, (Display) 1280x1024/32bit/60Hz
(OS) Windows XP Professional (5.1 - 2600), (installed for) 7h 54m, (uptime) 3h 48m 24s .:. (HDDs) 24.1G/28.4G(84.7%) free

Is there a fix for this problem or any recomends? i would give everything to fix this :>

i had the same experience just tonight and i had my computer on all day. it is probably the overheating because this only happens to me if i have my computer on for long periods of time. my suggestion: either get a better cooling fan or dont play the game at all, nerds (no offence to nerds).

12-26-2003, 05:15 AM
Nope. Not an over-heating problem.
I'm having this pb with a Toshiba laptop, a Satellite 2410-515 with a geforce 4 420Go 32Ram. No idea of what actually happened. The hotline didn't help.
I wanna try some 3rd party drivers now. Do anyone know of any (Detonators are NOT xompatible with the Go serie)

12-29-2003, 09:46 PM
well i just came by this did no research and am not having any of these problems *yeah* ^_^;; but anyways...
firstly i dont think its cs or ur mobo or winxp(although when using xp make sure u install drivers from cd or download from ur vid card maker cause xp drivers do not support opengl) it seems to mainly happen with nvidia card users. lets see what else.. i also hear alot that the older drivers work better then the newer crop there coming out with which ive heard many times to be referd to as a load of crap. oh and if i dont really think u should go to Nvidia.com to get ur drivers but rather the site of the company that made your card (i.e. if its a msi or a asus go to there sites) there are minor differences and gettin specific drivers for ur card might help. oh if ur card isnt one of the newer nvidia cards then there newer drivers seem to drop ur frame rate by like 10 fps sometimes if i remember anyother useless crap that probly wont help ill be sure to post ^_* :P

12-29-2003, 09:49 PM
oh yeah and laptops overheat easy and it could just be all that useless junk on ur system that u havent cleaned out
defragment ur drive aswell cause if u use a p2p program im sure u got alot of junk jumbeld all over dat hd of urs and its haven to labour to get the data. so yeah defragment and clear ur temp files and all that aights =D :-p

12-29-2003, 09:54 PM
oh it can also be sound lag which is kinda funny but yeah
put the sound on the most crapy seting u can
or try running with no sound card and see if it lags if not then whaladida u know da probs =D :P

12-29-2003, 10:00 PM
Can u tell im bored ? http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/rolleyes.gif
this might help
its by some dude named rob on some other board
"I got it running counterstrike fine. I got a tweak utility called "geforcetweakutility" and it has some registry settings where you can enable via,nvidia,amd compatability. I still get freezes in hitman2 but all my other games seem to work fine. It could be something with hitman 2 that caused any problems. But i'm still not sure it's stable in other games because i've really only played counterstrike.

There's also another tweaking program called nvMax. I don't use it but it has some via compatability options in it as well.

One other thing i did is I got visiontek drivers since I own a visiontek geforce3 video card instead of the nvidia drivers from nvidia's website. Also the the new via hyperion drivers are now installed.

I really can't say what fixed it exactly but it seems to work ok now. I've been playing counterstrike without any problems for a week.

If I were to guess the geforcetweakutility had the most to do with it." http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/biggrin.gif

12-30-2003, 01:46 PM
oh and you might want to try the 53.03 drivers out they seem to help but still laggy compared to there older drivers

01-03-2004, 10:21 AM
Yeah, like i didn't try that before. My hdd are perfectly defragged and virus-checked and scan-disk-ed. No crap on my pc, i know perfectly what i'm running. SpeedFan helps me to cool the system down too. And i'm still having that damn pb.
It actually worked for awhile. I uninstalled the drivers + the cards, cleaned the registry (easycleaner helps), etc, and rebooted. I didn't install any new drivers, just kept the one auto-installed by windows (changed settings to 1024x768x32). And it worked. But now, this trick does no longer take effect. I'm having the same pbs with those standart drivers, uninstalling and {...} doesn't seem to work anymore.
I usually test that with GLXS. But...
BTW Toshiba didn't release any other drivers that the one provided with the laptop. If someone know of some third-party drivers, i'm interested..
