Have Athlon Geforce System. Unable to even start Unreal (ver.2.25f), freezes and have to reboot. Tried Open GL, et.
Only works in software mode. Any answers or help?

I have a CL Geforce and have not had any sort of trouble running Unreal or UT. I can't suggest a fix, but can recommend a good site devoted to Geforce cards
http://3DGPU.com

They have a great messageboard there where you can gain a lot of info about probs with Geforce cards.

I had ****loads of probs with my prophet in Unreal Tournament.
I got the precaching and then nothing else with every driver available.
the new UT patch sorted it out though, don't know if this helps but there you go.

Try running in direct 3D using the Athlon Detonator release from nVIDIA.

BUT - install the 3.53 Detonator drivers first, then try the 3.6x Athlon drivers.

Also - what motherboard do you have? (hopefully NOT the SD-11). If it has the VIA southbridge be sure you installed all the Windows patches/drivers. and v3.13 of the AGP miniport driver.

There have been a LOT of problems with UT + Athlon + TNT2/GeForce.... Look in some of the older posts (esp. those from Guiness)

Hope this helps!
