Hey all, I hope sombody might be able to help out with my issue as this is my last hope.
I have a AMD system with specs as follows:
AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+
SB Audigy 2 ZS card
Total Physical Memory 2.00 GB running in dual channel mode
ASUSTeK Computer INC.
Model A8N-SLI Premium
BIOS Version ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ACPI BIOS Revision 1009
NVIDIA nForce4 Parallel ATA Controller
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack Service Pack 3 (v3.0)
Long Version 4.09.00.0904
NVIDIA GeForce EVGA 8800 GS
Total Local Video Memory 384 MB
Total Local Texture Memory 625 MB
Driver Version 126.96.36.19950
Driver Date 3-27-2009
NVIDIA DRIVER 182.50
OK, now to the issue. I have been playing games on the system for about 3 years with no issues. I have recently (a year ago) updated the video card to the 8800GS with again, no issues.
I have tried to install BOXEE for windows and I get the following error message, “FATAL ERROR - OPENGL VERSION 1.4 OR HIGHER IS REQUIRED TO RUN BOXEE, CURRENT VERSION IS 1.1”
I have contacted EVGA to try and see how to update OpenGL in my system with no help. I have uninstalled current version of the NVIDIA drives and gone back to earler drivers and re-installed up to the most recent driver with no luck.
I can honestly say that I am totally stumped and have no idea where to go from here due to my lack of undersatanding of what OpenGL does and how it works with NVIDIA and the card companies.
