Make sure your video drivers are up to date and your have both the launcher and your desktop set to 32 bit colors. 

If that doesn't help post your system specs.

In addition to the graphics card drivers, make sure that you have (the latest) chipset drivers installed. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you should post your system specs. CPU-Z and GPU-Z offer such information (links in my signature).

Ok my System is a Dell Laptop with Dual Core Pentium 2.0Ghz, 2GB RAM and GeForce Go 7900 GS with 256 MB RAM.
What kind of drivers do i need? I mean there are a lot of modified drivers on the web for the Laptop Cards (Nvidia doen't support Laptop Cards). Which one is the best?

Thx in advance

Re: Unable to get proper format for open gl w32
you have a few choices, you can modify your existing driver, download the newest nvidia driver for your card ,make a copy of your original driver install file then swap files from one to the other.......

this works but has its limitations

or google nvidia forceware 181.

there are a few forcewares that have been modded for laptops ,

but the most important is to make a back up of your registry /system before you start (just in case)

other than  that make sure that you are selecting open gl in the video section of the launcher

but personally your card should run this from scratch (original drivers)

so check your open gl settings to see whats working ......

As Fubar asked... Did you check that both the desktop and fs open are set to 32 bit colors?
Do not meddle in the affairs of coders for they are soggy and hard to light

Once more for the win: chipset drivers.

Could you download and run CPU-Z and tell us what it says about your motherboard and chipset? The relevant information is under the "Mainboard" tab on CPU-Z, most importantly the entire "Chipset" line. Or just take a screenshot of the "Mainboard" tab and post it here.

I can assure you that there have been cases where people have written in far worse English than you. The best example would be the living legend known as woutersmits.
