After Format Problem?
    Hello guys , I've had some problems with my PC about 10 days ago , it was a problem with the battery or the electricity or something like that, I keep getting this message at the setup screen (CMOS Checksum
    error loaded defaults) , I think my motherboard is dying, anyway I had to format the system, but when I started FSO , I had the following message:
    Unable to get proper pixel format for OpenGl W32!
    Error: Unable to initialize display device!
    File: gropengl.cpp
    Line: 2972
    My PC Specs are:
    Processor: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.82 GHz
    OS: Microsoft  Windows XP Professional SP2
    Memory: 640MB RAM
    Video card: Nvidia Geforce FX-5500 256MB

    And thanks.

    NOTE: I thought the FX-5500 supports OpenGl doesn't it? and by the way I'm still looking for that damage lightning shader so if anyone knows any URL to it please let me know.

Re: After Format Problem?
Reinstall your GPU drivers.
Also, please post a fs2_open.log (instructions how to generate one can be found in the FAQ)

The issue itself can also be found in the FAQ.

* jr2 thinks maybe your coin-cell battery is dead.  Usually CR2025, on the motherboard.  It keeps system clock running and CMOS settings intact.  Try replacing it if you get this error again.

FYI: Yes, Laptops have them too.  At least some do.  And yes... they are a PITA to replace.  I know from first hand experience.  :ick:  But try seeing if there is a BIOS update for the system first... also, sometimes static discharge or other problems could cause this.  Hopefully the error doesn't come back.

Re: After Format Problem?
Well , I have good news and I have bad news, the good news is that I'm no longer getting that OpenGl message because I just updated my Video card, the bad news is that I updated it with 169.25 release so I'm getting the zebra stripes all over my ships, so I'm now downloading the 175.19WHQL , more bad news I'm afraid, that VP pack for the damage lightning problem didn't work, I'm still getting them , any suggestions?
