    opengl Problems

    Hello everyone
    I have a huge problem with my Elsa Erazor3pro (TNT2-chipset).
    When i build it in my slower PC(Celeron300,32MB-Ram) everything works perfect-but when i built ths card in my better one (K6/3-400 via mainboard K6BV3+-2MB cache ) i cannot even get in an opengl game like Q3 . No opengl works. I tried everything. Drivers 4 my graphic-card, drivers for my mainboard, formating harddisk and reinstall Win98.....
    Can some PLEASE help me !!

    Hello Sven
    Its probably your via chipset in your new mainboard that causes your problem but first of all check this Win.ini matter and see if it solves your problem.

    Click Start / Run.
    Type "win.ini" (without quotes) and press OK.
    Search for a line that says "DVA=0" (without quotes).
    Add a semicolon ( before the DVA (The line should now look like this: ";DVA=0" (without quotes))
    Save and close the file
    If you find this causes more problems, just take out the semicolon.
    Note that not everyone has this line, and if there is none you'll have to try another solution.
    Try switching to AGP1X using your BIOS setup or AGP Wizard (more information here). This may help, but will reduce performance slightly.


    Check your AGP aperture size in your BIOS Setup. Start at half of what your total system memory is and save it.


    If you doesnt find the line or it still doesnt work try to download VIA 4-1 driver
    You can find it on the VIA homepage.

    Stay in touch.

    *re*
    I have ījust tried every of your ideas-nuthing of them helped-the VIA4in1drivers I`ve already downloadet twice,---but it didn`t help. Thanx for your support.
    I hope u or someone else has got another idea 2 solve the problem, but thats very boring---no Q3 no SoF......
    I heard that TNT2-chipsets always have problems with opengl-but my friend has the same mainboard and graphic card--well he has Erazor3 (withou pro) but he is very lucky-and opengl works at him-what else can I do
    Need your support ! !

    Yes the tnt seems to have problem with open gl.But its mostly because the DVA line in win.ini. Did you have the line at all??

    Your config should really work.
    In meantime you can check this download It isnt the right solution but it works.

    Hi there
    There`s not such a line in win.ini.
    opengl-drivers from SciTech-i think i have downloadet them a month ago-but they did not work then -I`ll try it again.
    Hmm-what elsa can it perhaps be??
    Is my processor damages (K6-3-400)
    or my mainboard (K6BV3+ with 2MB cache size)
    I really don`t cause my graphis card works
    Thanks for your support

    Re: opengl Problems

    Ok, I had the very same problem as you Sven.

    So, try downloading the latest VIA 4-in-1 package at their site:
    http://www.via.com.tw/drivers/index.htm

    When you install it, install the AGP mode in NORMAL.Another thing, goto bios and make sure you have "assign IRQ to VGA" enabled.I hope this works for ya man.

    BTW, from my experience, OpenGL performance sucks compared to Direct 3D on a TNT2.

    Yes-I will try the BIOS thing.
    The via drivers I have already installed---even the new ones !!Well-I have somne proggies (winamp-gl,disasteroids,world-opengl-animated-maps...) and games (Soldiers of Fortune, Q3) that only support opengl.
    Cya-I hope this will help
    Thx also for your support

    Hmm-damn
    I tried it again to download the via drivers pack and check the BIOS. But everything was setup correctly. Can I check something else in the BIOS??
    I contacted you yesterday Thelv
    Cya
