OK, just put together a new PC, containing win XP pro, 512 megs RAM, and a GeForce 3 Ti200 card in it.
used the drivers that came with the card…
but when I start blender, there are no buttons, no grid, NOTHING is viewable. a button is viewable if my mouse is over it though, but that is the only time.
if a load an old scene and render, it renders fine (And FAST)…
buuuut…blender is 100% unusable in this state.
tried running in 16 and 32 bit modes.
