RE: Installing Correct Video Drivers Disables 3D Functions
I have exact the same problem
my card is X800 AGP Card from Asus
what I have found by testing lots of driver is that this version works:
all other versions disables directdraw and AGP texture acceleration.
have not found any other solution to this.. and would appreaciate any fix
and workaround for the newer drivers..
