MOHAA ATI Radeon 9600 graphics promlems

  1. I am having problems running MOHAA with my new Radeon 9600 series graphics card. It initially worked fine when i installed the card i've now set yp the card and upgraded a couple od other bits on the PC and set up a dual monitor function and now it's stoped working.

    The 1st problem was it would't load up at all
    "Error loading OIpen GL subsystem"

    I dissabled the dual monitor setup and now it loads but all the graphics are messed up in the game. You can still play but the surface textures are all black with flickering yellow and pink grids on them.

    Tried a couple of other games and no promlems my spec is shown below:

    DxDiag Notes
    DirectX Files Tab: No problems found.
    Display Tab 1: The file ATI2DRAG.DRV is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer.
    Sound Tab 1: No problems found.
    Music Tab: No problems found.
    Input Tab: No problems found.
    Network Tab: No problems found.

    Any ideas ???

    Try to find a version of drivers for the card that are WHQL certified. Non-WHQL certified drivers running on Windows can be a bear sometimes and cause graphical "glitches" or the BSOD.
