    This is a shot in the dark but....

    un-install the Via 4 in 1 driver and reinstall it without the AGP Driver option.

    May also want to consider downloading from ATI there driver / software remover, and then letting windows update install a "clean" ati driver (no opengl support so doom won't work) then installing the newest ATI official driver (not the beta one for Half-Life 2).

    If you do this method, you may have to "fight" with your machine to get the just SuperVGA driver back, it will remove the Ati driver that are native to windows too.
