Well I found a workaround so far by using Rivatuner.

Go to OpenGL options -> Back / depth buffering Tab and change Back buffer flipper mode to Block Transfer.

Yeah, it worked!
OGL Games feel still a lot slower than on a Windows XP machine, but finally I can play them in full screen! Thanks for that!

A few days back I decided to try the Windows update drivers again and it fixed my problem. Don't know why I had the terrible performance the first time but it seems ok now. Also I noticed that new drivers were released through Windows Update yesterday so try those.

Yep, somehow I am sure OpenGL isn't supported in the 64-bit windows 7.
And also, I experience slowdown on my laptop with 8600M GT.

What is the driver version after you installed them?

it depends on what driver you are using ....

Well, that's the reply I wanna get - knowing if this workaround works for ATI users.
I don't know about ATI and OpenGL but since Rivatuner works with ATI cards too, I was
just wondering if it has the OpenGL options in it.

Maybe there's some other ways to change OpenGL settings for ATI users?
