HI all.
Having trouble with my nwe MSI nVidia MX460 card.
When I try to run a game (Flightsim 2002), I get an error saying that Hardware accelleration was not found, and now using software accelleration.

I have d/loaded the latest drivers, and it has been working fine.  I've installed another program, and also have just performed an update voa Windows update.
I am using Windows XP Pro, P3-1000 on an Intel board.

I have used system restoer to bring it back from pre update stage but no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think your question is confusing and appears to be self-contradictory.  Specifically, you say:

"I get an error saying that Hardware accelleration was not
found, and now using software accelleration."

But you ALSO say:

"I have d/loaded the latest drivers, and it has been working fine"

So now I don't know whether you are having an actual problem or what.

Please rephrase your question such that others can understand the entire situation and can then offer advice.

You're right - Sorry about that.  U alsways have trouble writing what I mean here.  

It should be that I have the latest drivers, and up until today, have not had a problem.  Now I have the accelleration problem.  

It has happened once before and I just restored my Ghosted version to alleviate the problem.
And that was not caused by the same software installed today.  I don't know what does it.

Sorry about the confusion - Hope this is a little clearer.

Thanks again.
