    Did you try starting UT in safe mode? It sounds like your video is not switching over properly. In safe mode you would be able to check your video device selection and make sure it is compatible with your hardware. Disable 3d sound while you're at it. Check your windows device manager for conflicts in hardware, or in multiple,redundant installations of 1 piece of hardware. Remove all such devices from device manager, and reboot so that windows can reinstall 1 version of each device.
    Rerun windows setup in case some file has become corrupted. This has fixed a lot of problems for many people.

    Be sure you're running the Detonator release for the Athlon. I still can only get mine to work in D3D, tho' /~unreal/ubb/html/frown.gif

    ...and be sure you've installed all the requisite patches and drivers for your chipset.

    AND the v4.02 patch for UT might help.
