    This problem frequently happens as a result of an incompatible driver...

    You said you're drivers we're up to date - but what ForceWare version are you using?
    Have you tried using ForceWare from the time when Jedi Academy 2 was released? They should be compatible.

    The game is trying to set a certain graphics mode and it fails - it all points to an too old OpenGL driver or an incompatible driver.
    So switching drivers is the only thing that comes to my mind..

    Yeah, it was the drivers. Silly me, I thought that the "Update Driver" button under Device manager would take care of it. It works now. Thanks.
