OpenGL for Half-Life Error

  1. Okay heres the problem.

    I can play Half-Life and the mods like Natural Selection and CS fine in both Software and DX rendering. But I find that the lighting in both are limited, so when I try to change to OpenGL the game restarts but then gives me a Error Message saying.

    'This video mode is not supported
    Changing to software mode
    Okay Cancel'

    Anyway to fix the problem?

    Processor: AMD ATHLON 64 X2 3600+ AM2 DUAL CORE 64BIT 2000MHZ HYPER TRANSPO
    MotherBoard: Asus M2N4-SLI Support AMD Socket AM2 Athlon 64 CPU ATX nForce4 S
    DVD/CD: Samsung 52x32x52x CDRW+16DVD Combo
    Memory: 1GB DDR2 667 PC5300 SDRAM Memory
    Case: Thermaltake SOPRANO
    Graphics: GeForce 7600 GS 512MB PCI-Express
    Hard-Disk: Seagate 250GB 7200rpm SATA
    OS: Windows Vista Ultimate

    Any help would be good.

    Thanks for the help -.-

    I found the answer for myself.

    It was simple, and I feel stupid for not thinking of it before.

    Since I had Windows Vista. I needed to get the Windows Vista Drivers, not the Windows XP.

    Feel free to laugh at my idiocy.
