Hi I have a GAINWARD geforce ti 4200 . The problem is that when i install the 56.72 or 71.89 drivers from NVIDIA all hardware acceleration gets disabled. I get a frame in 5-6 secnds for a simple scene . Querying for the Renderer returns: NVIDIA GeForceTi 4200/SSE2/forceSW While the "forceSW" deos not appear when i install the drivers( very old ) that came along with the Card and applications run well. What could be the problem?

I tried quite some things :

1. Uninstall previous driver and install new onw
2. Installed the new one over the prev driver.
3. Even did a complete OS reinstall :( .

But no results.

The new driver ( 71.89 ) was working fine .. meaning i could play quakeIII at gr8 frame rates and other ogl apps were also runnign fine ( except for doom3 - which gave a slide show on 71.89 , but did great on 56.72 ).

But really dont know what happened .. one day all ogl apps reduced to a slide show!!
Is there any way by which Software renderinf has been forced???
