wow, please dont answer questions when you dont take the time to look at system specs or dont know what you are talking about. i did search the forum (in fact several of them for the past few days, in fact i started on google like always and then started searching individual forums, infact i waited two days searching before i posted, so drop the smug attitude) mobile 965 is intel and you could of took the time to SEARCH before assuming i had an nvidia card and this was an nvidia issue. so stop trying to up your post count and only answer if you know what you are talking about. sorry if i come across with an attitude, i do understand its annoying when people new to forums ask the same question that has been answered a million times, but i really dont like people who cant practice what they preach or were you telling me i should go download nvidia drivers for my intel ? cause if so you shouldnt be answering anyones questions on here... i understand no one here is getting paid and this is a community trying to help eachother, but coming at me like im some dick with no consideration for other people times really pisses me off. if you would of took 1/1000th of the time ive spent searching to look at my system specs before you ASSumed i was just some 12 year old who doesnt know how to use a forum, then i wouldnt have had to waste my time setting you straight. have a great day, this is 5 minutes of my life ill never get back , because you couldnt practice what you preach.

my issue still exist, i completely uninstalled my driver reinstalled and still have the same issue. i have tried every compatibility option possible. ive set the -dx level and tons of other things but still cant get this to work. if anyone has had this same issue and fixed it please let me know as there are several other people besides me working to solve this same issue and we would all appreciate it very much.

It is just as good as any other OS.

I was googling and searching a lot how to solve this problem, but I didn't find a proper answer, so I decidet to fix it myself. ( I REALLY HOPE I WAS THE FIRST ONE TO SOLVE IT )

One and the most simplewayto fix it ( if you use steam ) is to right click on your Counter Strike ( in my games ) and go to properties. You'll find 'Set lunch properties' there, and you simply add "-window" and "ok". After you're done, you start CS. If you did it correctly, then it should be in window mode, working fine. After that you go to options > video and optimize CS 1.6 graphics as you want. If problem occurs again, then start from the window mode again.

Personally I think it's cause there's no good drivers for OpenGL since it's OGL that is causing problems on my pc.

Wish you all the best with Windows 7 and good luck in playing and all of you g33ks should hail @ me. CU on CS 1.6

/ I really hope I helped you out!

Edit: I'm also sorry for my typos. Reason for that is, I'm already playing :)
