I have installed WinXp SP2, which has DX9.0C, then i installed the
61.77 drivers, and any OpenGL game i have (Doom3, Call of Duty, HL...)
will not exit without ctrl+alt+del. in CS, when i set it to Direct3D,
it has no problems with exiting, but under OpenGL it just can't exit
without three finger salute. other games without problems are: GTA
Vice City, UT2004, FarCry, Halo.
My System is as follows:
Biostar IDeq 200V (M7VBA latest BIOS)
AMD AthlonXP 3000+ 333Mhz
1GB 333Mhz Ram
eVGA Geforce 6800
160GB Maxtor 8mb cache HDD

it did not do this before either SP2, or 61.77, not sure which. Any
Help? anyone else have this problem?

Sounds like another conspiracy.

No problem with SP1 ( + all updates ), 61.77, DX9.0c
( P4, FX5900, SB Audigy 2 - latest drivers, Far Cry, Doom 3 ... )

Hopefully, you did a full image backup of your system partition
before installing SP2 ?

I expect some applications problems with SP2 and intend
to be extremely cautious indeed with its installation. I advise others

to be similarly wary. My copy of Drive Image 7.03 will see
frequent use.

the problem was the drivers, used the ones that came on the CD
(60.85), and those made all the difference.
