Hi… I’m trying to play several OpenGL games on Windows 2000, and meeting pretty much zero success. My machine is an Acer Aspire 3680 with Intel 945 GM onboard graphics; I have the latest drivers from Acer’s website installed, but I can’t seem to get any hardware acceleration for OpenGL programs - when I run them, the framerate is about 1 FPS and CPU usage goes through the roof. Using an OpenGL diagnostic program indicated that the current OpenGL driver is Microsoft’s generic (software) driver, as opposed to Intel’s.
Also FWIW, OpenGL worked absolutely fine on Windows Vista.
What’s going on here?
