Ok i just downloaded some sample code and compiled it. Whenever i run it the screen flickers and the code works except for the red. The red just doesn''t show up. I have no clue what''s wrong. Do you?

Strangely enough, I managed to lose the entire red channel from all of my computer''s video output (this includes the desktop and all applications) when I accidentally shook loose the monitor''s cord on the tower end (I rarely screw these things to place as I often disassemble my computer for one reason or another). Anyway, it really freaked me out and I was getting ready to take the monitor to be serviced and have my friend bring his graphics card over for testing, when I completely out of the blue decided to adjust the connection a little and everything went back to normal.

Umm... actually, I don''t think this is really related to the OP - well yeah, sorry about that ...

ok i checked the monitor cable. thats not it. it only happens when i try to run something using opengl. I tried installing an opengl game on my system (soldier of fortune) and when i try to run it the screen flickers and i get a message saying that my card might not be opengl compatible. I know it is because i''ve used this card before and it worked. I''m thinking the drivers that i''m using are messed up.

Check your window creation code again...I had the same problem when I started out. I don't know exactly what was causing the problem but I suspect it was a problem creating the window. Try playing around change to other resolutions 16,24, 32 bits and see what happens...

Thank You. I had the bits set to 16 and changed it to 32 and also set it to the right resolution. Everything works now. Thank you so much.
I still have the problem with soldier of fortune if anyone would like to help me with that.
