    Sounds like your drivers have fscked up. Not sure though, but something's not right. Try reinstalling the drivers... remove the old ones first, reboot, then install the new ones/an older and verified version and reboot again. Ought to help.

    Aha, a 3Dfx-card. Funky, yes. Old, yes... ok, so I don't know whether or not new drivers would actually help here as I was just assuming you were an nVidian like the rest of the drones. ;D

    Check out http://www.guru3d.com/ -- they have tons of drivers, perhaps they have what you're looking for.

    As for the procedure, it's still just as I said. Remove, reboot, reinstall, reboot.

    What will happen is that your resolution MIGHT drop to 640x480 (if it's an unsupported card), but it'll be right back up once the proper drivers are installed.
