Take your pick of Detonator drivers from 12.41 up. The 20.80 dets should be out soon, and provide a modest boost for the MX.

I've noticed XP doesn't run HL too well in D3D or OpenGL. I'd guess just play around with different drivers.
I know I've seen something about getting HL to run fine in XP somewhere here, I just don't remember which thread.
May also want to check the Games database here for any hints.

Brian its fixed mate , runs so sweet smile
XP rocks .........

You can switch WinXP into compatibility mode on a shortcut by shortcut basis for troublesome appz or games. It works like this: You have a game or app that won't run under WinXP, you right click the shortcut and choose properties, compatibility mode. A drop down menu shows you the different modes you can switch to (Win95, Win98, Win2000, WinNT). Pick the one you want and then your program will run.

Superb feature.

Im running it in 98 mode .... and its great


man thats so cool .............

Oh, yeah. Forgot about that, since I didn't use it, and am not running XP anymore.
