I have Pentium 4 1.6 GHz machine. The OS I run is Windows 2000. My video card is Sis 300/200. Let me get to the problem:
a) Whenever I run any video file (be it mpg, mpeg, avi, wmv, etc.), it is not played properly. That is, the screen looks like it has been cut into 3 parts and each of these parts have the video running simultaneously. If I press Alt-Enter and view the video in full screen, it gets more garbled. But the irritating part is that this problem doesnt occur always. There are times when I can run 5-6 files wholly, without any problems. Then suddenly this problem occurs. I have all the latest codecs. I tried 3 other video players..but the problem is the same. Could someone please help me?!
b) I am not able to play certain games because they give an Cannot load OpenGL subsytem error. How do I rectify this?
c) Certain games like GTA3 have the problem of the screen getting refreshed often. As a result, some of the text keeps disappearing.
Could someone kindly help me solve these problems. Thanks.
Update your videocard drivers. Sis 300/200 isnt the model name of your videocard, its the name of the GPU or something similar.
How do I find out which video card I have? Could someone tell me whether there is a tool to detect the same?
go to belarc website and download their advisor, it can tell you exactly what kind of video card you have
