Another strange problem.

Note: the code is perfectly fine, it's known to run well on thousands of users.

One of them reported this in the logs:

Vendor String: NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer String: GeForce 7950 GT/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!
Version String: 2.0.3
Extensions: none found !!

CPU is an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
OS is Windows XP
Video card is an eVGA geforce 7950gt KO
Drivers are the most recent ones from nvidia.

Any idea ?

I have the same card, and a much smaller AMD processor. When I tried to install the newest (97.44) driver, it said that no compatible hardware found. So I had to fall back to the previous driver (93.71) which works fine.

Probably this will help you.

Again, if you can report the driver version your life will be much simpler.

I saw the similar situation once: the drivers are installed, GL version reported is 2.0.1, no extensions whatsoever. Un-installing and reinstalling the driver fixed that.
