    please title your threads desciptively.
    What kind of graphics card are you using? A driver alone doesn't tell me anything.

    S3 ProSavage DDR is an unsupported/end-of-life integrated chipset, so S3 has discontinued support of this chipset.

    The latest official drivers from S3 can be found at:
    http://drivers.s3graphics.com/en/do...ageDDR_420/S3G_ProSavageDDR_winxp_v139433.exe

    VIA Arena (a VIA chipset and integrated solutions website) has some slightly newer/beta-style drivers which you can obtain at:
    http://www.viaarena.com/Driver/S3G_ProSavageDDR_winxp_v139433.zip

    Both are fairly old (Feb 2005), but the latest available.

    I'm unsure if you can bend Half-Life2/Source Engine into submission with this chipset, but it's worth a try. You may have to get crafty with your config... if it's even possible.

    Good luck!
