I just re-installed my Battlefield 1942 game and tried playing it...i had major issues. The beginning start menu had white borders, and no bar levels or spaces for font or level adjusting (volume, texture, sound, name, mouse sensitivity etc.). During the game, i didn't have any crosshairs either. Tell me please, is this just because i have a high end computer and the game is outdated??
These are my specs:
OS Name Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer Dell Inc. System Model Dell DXP061 System Type X86-based PC Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz, 2127 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. 2.1.2, 12/1/2006 SMBIOS Version 2.3 Windows Directory C:\Windows System Directory C:\Windows\system32 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume3 Locale United States Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "6.0.6000.20500" Time Zone Central Daylight Time Total Physical Memory 2,045.32 MB Available Physical Memory 1.19 GB Total Virtual Memory 4.21 GB Available Virtual Memory 3.09 GB Page File Space 2.29 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys
Do i need to install the v158.18 Windows Vista (32-bit or 64-bit) ForceWare driver on the nvidia website?? (My computer says im already updated though)
You haven't supplied enough info, what video card are you using?
try updating your video card 1st, it also might be a vista problem.
Driver: NVIDIA GeForce7900 GS Driver Version: 188.8.131.5246

I though that driver version (97.46) was for XP, you should be using the forceware 158 release from here;
Can you confirm that you actually have the Vista drivers and not the XP drivers?
I ran the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor recently and this was on my errors/issues:
"NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS NVIDIA" There is no compatibility data available for this device Also, how would i confirm that whether i have vista or XP drivers?

You download the Vista drivers from Nvidia and install those, the driver version number you are quoting is a XP driver version number.
