Hello, I have had some problems with games on my Thinkpad T-21, I am not sure if this is only for OpenGL or also direct3D The video side is about glitches, in Half-Life, Unreal gold, Unreal Tour GOTY and I think also Serious Sam, and who knows what other games I may install later that get the glitch. half-life only has the glitch in OpenGL mode unrealgold/UT/serious sam has it in all modes, I am going to patch unrealGold to 277I to see if it fixes anything. The glitch I am talking about is: objects/structures glitch through planes, For example: A dead body is ontop of roof, you walk under the roof and see the body through it, sometimes also when you arent even inside the house yet. Objects that are slightly far away glitch through the wall that they are on, or show rough edges, light errors like dark-light-dark-light-dark =-=-=-= A tree on a hill can be seen trough the hill when you are standing at the bottom (Seen in UnrealGold) The Audio part: Games like I mentioned above hang for a split second sometimes, half-life does this when it loads a sound (I think) this might also be true for other games, but they seem to do it more at random, could this be a hdd problem ? This also happends with the game BLOOD, so much so that I really can't play it. I am eable to make videos and screenshots of this if you want. Graphics Processor AGP 2x - S3 Savage/IX - 8 MB SGRAM Supported Display Graphics XGA (1024x768) Sound Microphone Compliant Standards Sound Blaster 16/Pro it runs direct3D 9 with I think opengl 1.2, 1.1 or 1.1.1 Drivers installed from http://download.lenovo.com/lenovo/content/ddfm/T21.html Either Audio Driver or Audio Driver III for windows 98/98SE Video driver (SavageIX8) for Windows 95/98/Me - ThinkPad A22e, T2*
Hello, yes, thanks for the help, but the problem solved itself for whatever reason when I turned it on after 2 days without power and the battery removed. Z-CPU: Intel Pentium III 800Mhz "Real speed": 796.6Mhz Family: 6 Ext: 6 model: 8 ext: 8 Stepping: A Multiplier: X8.0
Hello reader, I've got a windows 98 SE problem: I installed windows 98 on a Thinkpad T-21 which has a Pentium III around 600 Mhz if not more, a few days later I moved the hdd to an other laptop, a Compaq Armada E500 and windows started to install and (I think) change cpu drivers, it suddenly talked about 'installing Pentium II stuff bla.' A few hours later I moved it back to the T-21 and those E500 drivers are still there ! Z-cpu now only gives 200mhz ! and it is really slowing down the laptop, I only expirienced this recently for some reason, (I did the driver swapping a few days ago.) Could I have any help with this ? is there a way to change the drivers, or do I have to make a dirty or clean install ? I can give you a list of system drivers if you want. Thanks.
