Well I don't know jack about computers so forgive me if I sound stupid. Ok I think my problem is with OpenGL or something because some games Ive tried to play don't work in fact out of 10-15 only 2 play and not at first, they had OpenGL set as default so I switched them to DirectX 9 and they worked fine now I downloaded a demo and same kind of problem its says game will run on the the computer but theres just this message [COLOR=purple]GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]So I don't whats going on and any help would be appreciated.[/COLOR]
Could you give some more details? Like the games you were running and your computer specs?
Well the demo was Jedi academy and my computers been down for... I Don't know how long so I'm making do with my dads so its not a vary good one... I think, but this is what it has that I know of because I don't know how to dig up all the info. Windows XP Professional Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.40GHz 2.41GHz 768 MB of RAM I have no idea what this means but that it says under System Properties
What kind of video card do you have?
Go to your device manager and look under display adapters; under it, there should be something listed.
If it's an integrated card I can't really help with that. I might be able to later, but I got to go for now.

Got updated drivers?
1st January 2005
It may have onboard video that doesn't, God forbid, support OpenGL. Then again as mentioned it could just need driver updating.
Where is this device manager and how can I tell if my drivers are updated?
Boss-302;4395410Where is this device manager and how can I tell if my drivers are updated?
Device manager can be accessed through your control panel (It's in the start menu thing) or if you go to properties on "My Computer"; I forget what tab it is under through.
As for drivers, it depends on what video card you have. Usually you can look under properties through the device manager and click on the "drivers" tab.
I didn't make it!
When Jedi Academy gives you "GLW StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem" error , it usually means that your graphic drivers are outdated or too new for Jedi Academy. I saw cases like this before down in the Jedi Academy section. Like Commissar MercZ said , what graphic card do you have? Also , tell us your current graphic driver version. Here`s how and where you can find that information: - right click on Desktop and choose "Properties" - go to "Settings" tab and choose "Advanced" - you should now see several tabs (General , Adapter , Monitor , etc.) - one tab should be related to your graphic card (NVIDIA , ATI or some third company) - look for ForceWare version (NVIDIA) or Catalyst version (ATI) or whatever card you have
Ok heres what it says, NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X Memory size: 128 MB DAC Type: Integrated RAMDAC Version 184.108.40.206.00 Driver Provider: NVIDIA Driver Date: 4/7/2004 Driver Version: 220.127.116.11
