pngrata Posted November 24, 2007 Report Share Posted November 24, 2007 Hi all. I'm going to tell a little story first. Several months ago I decided I wanted newer drivers for my GeForce4 Go on my Inspiron 8200. After much searching, I found this site, and discovered how to install the 91.47 forceware, which I did without considering whether that would be the right option. All seemed well and good until I tried to run the original Half-Life yesterday and got an OpenGL error. Turns out, either that driver or something else I installed in the meantime broke OpenGL. I tried going back to the original Dell distro driver (I think it's a 41.xx knockoff or something), but it broke it a different way. Well, coming back here I went with one thread's recommendation for Forceware 44.68. Tadda! OpenGL works again, and without tweaking the inf file either. Now my new problem. With the 91.47 driver I could output in widescreen formats to an external screen in the Windows Display Settings, and switch my primary monitor to that screen. Now, with 44.68, I can only extend my desktop there in 4:3 resolutions, and not make the external the primary screen. So my question - what package should I be installing to make that work?
