"Driver component sizes mis-match."

I just upgraded from Win98SE to Win2000 (Athlon 2100+, Gigabyte GA-7VA, Leadtek A170 DDR, 512MB), and now I get this OpenGL error. I've updated all drivers, but the problem persists.
Any ideas please anyone?

Describe how you updated drivers.

Hint: Driver Update or Windows Update is not going to do this.

I down loaded any updated drivers I could find and took others from disc. I then went through the Device Manager and followed the prompts.
If updating drivers won't fix the problem, can you suggest what will please?

The other question.

In reply to: Re: Just one question.

What drivers did you install?

Many are blissfully unaware about the BIOS must be 2000 ready, and motherboard drivers. Usually they get the video, audio, USB filters and more, but miss the first two I noted.

Details on your part may reveal what driver you missed.
