    had lots of problems following a game mod download--had to remove and re-install my voodoo 5 drivers- re-installed Direct X 8.1- now my game won't load and I get an Open gl error-

    Please verify that your card is Open GL compliant

    It's definitly a driver problem. If you've reinstalled them & it still doesn't work, it seems reinstalling the OS completely might do the trick ( oh how I love Norton Ghost ... ).

    Its look like its Counter-Strike OpenGL?

    1. Try to install the latest Nvidia
    2. Try to install the latest DirectX (version 9 or 10)

    And then:
    1. Right Click on the desktop and press properties.
    2. Settings
    3. Advanced
    4. Troubleshoot
    5. Move the slider to Full

    Now its almost 100% that this will work.

    Forgot to say that you must press OK after you moved the slider to Full.
