techincally this is triple6's fault. i think.

i followed the instructions in the "solved: videocard problems" thread, because my screen was blanking out randomly. this involved wiping my computer of my old drivers and installing new ones. so I did it and reset my resolution settings to normal and stuff, but now, when I try to start counter strike source, I get:

Unable to init shader system

WHAT?! :eek:

being a major counter-strike geek, i would REALLY like it if someone could help me with this.

thanks,

roger

edit: not to mention that when I try to scroll on pages in Firefox, it does this wipe thing from the top and i get a beep.

When you uninstalled all your drivers it could have hosed your direct x drivers. Let's check and see what's going on with your direct x files.

Click start, run
type dxdiag

See if your running the most recent direct x which is 9.0c

Then of course you could try reinstalling direct x as well......

This would seem to indicate that your video card drivers are not installed correctly.

If you have the latest drivers(77.72) then try going to an older driver set like something in the 66.XX series. Just do the normal uninstall of the Nvidia drivers thru Add/Remove Programs to remove your current driver.

I did found this: http://support2.vugames.com/hl2/answer.aspx?ID=7161

Additionally it may be that you need to re-install the chipset drivers for the motherboard to rectify any AGP/GART issues that may have occurred as a result of upgrading the video drivers.
