Corrupt OpenGL

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Craig Stevenson, Dec 17, 2011.

  1. I'm having problems running GoogleEarth in OpenGL, it freezes before showing the Globe, I have re-installed a few times and still same, I suspect I have a corrupt OpenGL\Vid Driver install.

    I have Win7 Pro 64-bit, GTX580 with V290.36, what is the best way to verify the install of OpenGL and re-install if required?

    Regards

    Tried the directx version?
     
  3. Yeah the DX version works fine.
     
  4. I would suggest a complete uninstall, reboot and then install the drivers again to see if that helps. It is possible that google earth is the issue, not your drivers.
     
  5. Google has been installed several times before I remembered I could start it in GL or DX, the Vid drivers have also been updated twice I think since this started. I know GoogleEarth isn't the problem mate, I'm using it as an example because I don't really have anything else that I run in GL at the minute.

    GLView confirms there is an issue (see report below) and someone else has reported the same issue on nVidia forums. I think it's a nVidia driver issue.

    OpenGL driver version check (Current: 4.2.0, Latest known: 8.17.12.9036):
    Outdated version of display drivers detected
    According the database, you are might be not using the latest version of display drivers for your video card.

    No ICD registry entry
    The current OpenGL driver doesn't expose the SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows (NT)/CurrentVersion/OpenGLDrivers registry entry. Unable to detect the driver version, driver revision name and filename.

    Few texture units found
    This may slow down some applications using fragment programs or extensive texture mapping.

    Extension verification:
    GL_ARB_compatibility was not found, but is available in driver version 8.17.12.9036
     
  6. Seems to have been corrected in the latest nVidia Beta Driver.
