as in the driver that comes with windows?

that is a default driver that is stripped down to work with all cards, get the real drivers.

I know for a fact that that card on WinXP using NVIDIA detonator drivers supports many extensions.

Most likely the "default" windows certified labs driver is your problem - but there might also be a few small issues due to being on Windows 2000 (I don''t think there are any openGL extensions that wouldn''t be supported there, but just thought you might like to know that the hardware acceleration under Windows 2000 is more limited than under Windows XP - due to more ridgid rules in the driver HAL/HEL model)

Reinstall latest nVidia drivers. Uninstall any previous display driver before installing the new one.

format

edit: then get the latest drivers from www.guru3d.com



Don''t format! Just go to <a href="http://www.nvidia.com">nVidia</a> and download newest detornator drivers.

CPPMaster Poppet is correct, but just to be on the safe side...

1.Boot your computer into safe mode.
2.Open up controlpanel->sysntem->device manager.
3.Remove ALL display adapters
4.Open up the Add/remove software.
5.See if you have anything in there that may be a driver. (I had this problem once...woked fine after i removed it..)
6.Reboot the comp. again and start normaly.
7.Now Win should detect you have a new GFX device, and you can intall that followed by the newest detonator.
