Hi Guys! It's been a while since I said hello, and now I've got a problem maybe you-all can help me with. Got a new system for Christmas!! HP P4/2.3ghz, 512mb, 60GB, CDR-W, DVD, Intel 82845G 32mb video card, & WinXP Home Edition. TM...she's a no work!! Error msg recd - "could not initialize acceptable OpenGL rendering context". I went to the OpenGL site, but could not find anything about my specific card. I also went to Intel's site, but again, nothing specific about the card. Any suggestions??

Get a new video card and save yourself alot of headaches.

Try to get an Nvidia or a Radeon with at least 64 MB of memory

All I can tell you is that I have gotten that message MANY a time. It IS a video card driver thing. You should look for updated drivers. I know diddly squat about how drivers work, but I got the Wicked GL driver and that solved all of MY problems. Good luck.

Thanks guys! I kind of figured thats what it would be. I've got a 64 mb Nvidia tnt2 in my old machine (Win98se), but unfortunately it has to stay with the computer. Back to the store with more $$!!
