Default Videocard problem

The videocard is a BFG GeForce 6200 OC.

When you start up a game, the error comes;
---------------------
Failed to initialize renderer.
NiXAdapterDesc::GetDeviceCaps() failed.
---------------------

Any ideas? The drivers are weird. I think they're installed since Windows is running in normal resolution and colors, but Rivatuner says that there are no valid drivers so it can't load any of the specs for the card. They are the newest drivers from Nvidia.com so thats not the issue.

Help

If Rivatuner is telling u that, i would try to re-install the drivers anyway, since windows can use basic drivers for resolution and colors.

I'd reccomend ensuring all older and other video drivers are eliminated from the system and that you try re-downloading and installing the latest drivers.

If that doesn't work I guess you'll have to roll them back to the previous ones :-\

Tried both of those, didn't work.

Older drivers didn't work =/
