I went to start,run, and typed dxdiag. then i clicked the display tab and this is what my drivers are:

DEVICE:

Manufacurer: NVIDIA
Chip Type: RIVA TNT2/TNT2 Pro
DAC Type: Integrated RAMDAC
APPROX.Totoal Memory: 32.0MB

DRIVERS:

Main Driver: nv4_disp.dll

WHQL Logo'd: Yes

i dont know how i should update this. but i went to the NVIDIA website and tried downloading NVIDIA "GeForce and TNT2" after i finished downloading it, it went into the setup, and suddenly a box pops up saying the setup could not continue because it could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. can anyone tell me which one i should download and give me the link to the specific one. I'm doing this because im playing counter-strike and i cant get it to apply to openGL in the video mode. if you play it and know anything to help me plz tell me.

Your story seems incomplete. But those TNTs are pre-XP and

No one updated the drivers. In fact, finding the old XP driver doesn't do much for playing games or much else.

-> Worth noting is if you didn't install current motherboard drivers, some video drivers will cough up said error.

But your post is so lax on detail that all I can offer is that the TNTs are so old there are no updates.

Just follow the words in red.

It notes to tell about the PC and such, but tell why you need to update the drivers. If you are getting 800x600 and millions of colors that's about what to expect.
