i have had counter strike source for sometime now. since i have re formatted my computer and updated all the drivers i cannot play it. i have the latest geforce drivers i, i have updated windows xp but whenever i start up counter strike source it comes up with this error message: failed to set video mode-restting to defaults. game will now restart with the new video settings. i then press retry then i get this message: falling back to safe mode settings. failed to set video mode. this game has a minimum requirement of directx7.0 compatible hardware. i have played this game before on my computer so why can't i now? i look forward to your replies eddie
It sounds like either the card or the monitor cant handle the settings you chosen for the game to run in,have you tried choosing a different monitor resolution and refresh rate and lowering the graphics a tad and using 16 bit colour.Also and i haven't played this game but is there a set up option for the game,that examines your PC and finds the best set up for your PC.You could also try running the DirectX tests and see if they all pass.
