I wonder if anyone could help me,
I am running a P4 2.53 with 1 gig of memory and a geforce 4ti4200 graphics card and Windows XP Pro service pack 1, my pc was running fine, opengl etc regularly played half life, q2, q3, sof1 & 2, jedi knight 2 etc. until last month, i started recieving those winxp error messages saying “half life exe has caused an error in nvoglnt.dll” would you like to send etc.
I have tried to narrow the problem down by all the usual Nvidia drivers, Intel chipset drivers, removing pci cards, swapping memory, graphics card, cpu even the motherboard, (my friend has an identical computer). and countless re-formats but to no avail.
All direct 3D applications run fine its just anything to do with OpenGL.
Before the problem started i ran a copy of Quake2Max, (a updated unofficial add on pack to q2) which had updated OpenGL texture and lighting. Does anyone think this could have caused this problem.(Or has anyone had this problem).
My last attempt will be to remove the Master boot record off my hard drive and do a low level format, if the above has caused the problem.
I have scoured the online gaming forums, and never come up with any answers, there is a few problems with NVOGLNT.DLL like this in doing a ‘google’ search but they have not cured my probs, I have also noticed a person on this forum with problems like this using Half Life but he has not recieved any solutions yet apart from Half Life is not supported under Windows XP!!!.
Please could anyone help, suggest anything, i am at a loose end.
