Hello Gents and Gentets!
I have been online for some time now searching for a remedy to a rather irksome problem of mine. earlier today, I could run Half Life in regular old OpenGL mode, as always. This changed when I deleted my user profile (On Windows XP) and created a new one. Now, whenever i begin Half Life i get an error message stating that "The specefied video mode is not supported. The game will now run in software mode"
The computer is stubbornly adamant regarding this, and i have tried various solutions proposed to other people both on this forum and others.
Some include:Placing the nvoglnt.dll file (From WINDOWS/SYSTEM32) in the gldrv folder and changing the text in the drvmap from "Default Default gldrv/3dfxgl.dll 3Dfx Mini Driver"
"Default Default gldrv/nvoglnt.dll OpenGL Driver".
Setting launch options through steam to attempt to force the mode (-gl)
Uninstalling drivers, rebooting in safe mode and cleaning with Driver Cleaner Pro, then reinstalling drivers from Nvidia. I have also upgraded to DX10 in attempts to rectify this issue.
My Graphics card is an ancient Nvidia MX, you may all laugh at me for that :). Until earlier today, as i said, this was not a program and opengl ran fine at 1152 screen resolution.
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
Thank you all kindly for reviewing my problem.
