« on: December 02, 2010, 11:39:09 PM »
Hello folks,
               i have problem with my drivers, i am running Win XP SP3 and went to install an old Call of Duty Game: but on running it i get an error and it says can't open GL and i need to update my drivers to run this game.
               Although when i ran it in SP2 it ran fine but on SP3 it didn't:  here is an error report generated:
   

       
Can someone suggest how do i update my drivers so that i can play any games in near future. :)

My problem is solved since i had installed its default 6.13.10.3317 and installed it with one of my laptops Drivers i.e.,Intel alviso GM/Gm Video Drivers v: 6.14.10.4020 Rev A and the game started normally.
  I do not have a new rig, just a plain old PC and now it runs fine.

Anyways thank you for ur suggestion.
