Win2000 Prof. Ed. Video problem
Posted on 2003-10-27
I have installed Win2000 Prof ed. w/SP4 on a hitachi 82gig 7200 rpm HD, Gigabyte GA-8SDX MB, 384mb of pc133 ram, P4 1.8ghz cpu, 52x cd-rom, ATX case with 400 watt power supply, 1.44 floppy. I installed my geforce 440 SE 64mb sdrm vid card and the latest driver for the card.
My problem is this: I cannot get any 3d games to run on my computer especially Open GL based games. When I start a 3d game program the screen starts to break up into triangles and odd shapes, then I get the following error: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error
Abnormal Program Termination. Also, the only way I can get my computer to run at all (without 3d gaming) is by installing an older version of the driver that is for NT not 2000. I am willing to give 1000 points to the person who tells me how to fix this. Not the person who directs me to a weblink that might help me fix this but a real expert who knows what to do about this problem.
Thanks in advance for any help.
