Hey all,

I have a dually MSI K7d Master-L board with a TNT2-based video card running Windows 2003 Server.

I've patched it all up and have the latest drivers installed, but it won't run any games in OpenGL mode. The nVidia web site doesn't have any drivers for 2k3 Server, so I'm using that which came with the OS, which I think is my problem.

Running dxdiag shows that all of the Direct3d stuff is unavailable, which is wierd because the same card ran under windows 2000 server just fine.

Anyone have any ideass of what to do here?

Weather its 200x SERVER or not doesnt matter. Since the extensions 'Server' only means that the OS has extra functions and programs like Active Directory and such. So we might as well just say windows 2000. And 2003 is based on 2000 just like XP is based on 2000 so i would just give it a try and se what happens. Have you tried it yet?

I found some beta drivers on the nvidia site that did the trick. I also had to enable the hardware acceleration settings, because apparently 2k3 diables 3d acceleration by default.


Whatever, but it's fixed now. :D
