this one could go here or in hardware probs, take your pick.
got myself a video card, at last, geforce4 mx440se in fact, and I'm beginning to wonder why I bothered with the bloody thing.
Have been visiting all the old faves, half-life, quake3, etc to have some fun with a bit of speed and looks, but, and a bloody big but: installed unreal tournament hoping to have a frag fest, but after the splash screen, nothing, just a black screen and no sound. Copied game to HD, installed(clean) from HD, checked drivers, reinstalled card and drivers(tried 44.03's then 45.23's, even the old 31.40's) still no difference. UT's software renderer, direct3d, nothing. OpenGl doesn't even register. Checked the stickies on guru3d, checked all the UT sites and help files, even the atari help site, did all they said and still bloody nothing. Any help would be appreciated, have seen similar problems around but isn't helping me. If I can't get the damn thing to run, I'll have a sit-down and a good cry, AAAAARRRGGGHH.
Help, for chrissake, why only UT? If it wasn't such a top game I wouldn't give a rats. :a
btw: running duron 900(slow and old I know) 384mb sdram, xp pro(no service pack), nortons and firewall disabled when playing off-line, no overclocking, about 8gig free, onboard sound, via kt133 chip, and this is the only game I have had this happen.
Thanks in advance guys
