Problems with Quake 4, GeForce Go 7300, and Vista


Recommended Posts

I installed Quake 4 recently on my laptop. When I try to run it, I get an error... Unsupported video card/driver combination or something like that. Apparently it had something to do with Vista compatibility. So I patched up the game to the latest release, 1.4.2. Now I keep getting the following error, "Texture compression unavailable" even after trying different sets of (modded INF) drivers. Is this OpenGL related? Doom 3 didn't work when I installed it a few months ago either.

Now I'm afraid of buying Enemy Territory: Quake Wars 'cause it might not work either. :)

Strangely, Quake 3 and other Q3 Engine games began to work on my laptop (after replacing the OEM drivers with the modded INF ones). Hrm.

Anyway, my computer's specs are in my profile.

This is the console log:
