Hello here

I just switched to Windows 2000 Pro, and now I can't use any application/game making use of 3D (either using glide, opengl or directx) without crashing when returning to the desktop (ie. i can play fine, but when quitting the game all I have is a garbage on the screen and I can't do anything after that). 2D Games works well though.

I tried many different drivers (official ones and some tweaks), all have the same effect.

Under windows 98se, I don't have any problems.

Do you have any ideas to eradicate this problem ?

There are other drivers available: http://mallkun.to/ru...3-w2k-10300.exe http://download2.fil...igs-1.02.00.exe
What sometimes happens is that the opengl portion of the drivers is not copied to \winnt\system32. Check to see if they are. In 98se these are usually found \windows\system

Thanks for your reply

I've tried the second driver you mentionned (the first one I got a 403), and now it works (at least with unreal tournament, I can switch back to the desktop and quit the game without problems now smile

This may or may not help but you can also try the new drivers http://3dfxunderground.cjb.net still in beta though.

I also have a voodoo card, but mine is a Voodoo 3 3500 tv/capture thingy :-)
I go to http://www.voodoofiles.com to get what I need for the card.
I'm using that card with win2k pro just fine.
