OpenGL Failure in CS 1.6

I'm having trouble playing counter strike 1.6 (steam) with Renderer OpenGL.
I don't want to play with Software or D3D for diffrent reasons (it sux X_X).
I can really use your help here, I have windows 7, 64 bit. This is my video-card:
ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series (Microsoft).

Thank you for all your help!
Kosmith.

Kosmith welcome to the Seven Forums.

First thing would be to install the driver for your video card,

instead of using the built in Windows 7 driver, which I believe doesn't install the OpenGL components.

Ok I have downloaded the driver. OpenGL is now working! Thanks a lot dude!
One question though X_X..
Why is my max resolution in game so low now?
It could be ~1700 and now only ~1400?
And it shows the game in bow and left and right lanes are black..
