Hi, I recently purchased Enemy Territory Quake Wars and after the installation and all that I tried to play it and it came up with "FATAL ERROR
OpenGL driver doesn't support wglchoosepixelformatARB" does anyone know how to fix this?

I have ATI Radeon HD 2600 and updated it with the latest catalyst and
Vista home premium 32-bit.

I've solved the problem and the reason i didn't find this before is because my copy of ETQW didn't come with system requirements and my laptop is 0.2GHz lower then the minimum requirements.

I have the same issue as Sharpeye. I have a Fujitsu lifebook with the same Radeon chip, 4 gigs of ram, and Intel dual core 2.4 ghz....Hardware wise, I'm capable. I even check with ATI, but with a clean install of the latest drivers, I get the same issue. All the forums say is update your drivers.... They arent very helpful. I'm including my DXdiag to help if possible.

Also the issue existed before I installed Tunebite, incase you wonder about all the sound devices that show up in the Diag. Thanx guys. Best of luck.
