    Your Ethernet must be conflicting with the IRQ routines of your video card. Updating the software for your FSB, and perhaps peripheral controllers will solve the issue. Contact your motherboards manufacturer, and ask them for OS/2 fixes related to Yukon Ethernet and video drivers.



    What version of directX are you running?
    ATI or Nvidia?

    For Half-Life, go to settings -> video and choose something other than software under video mode. Like D3D or OpenGL.

    Please check your Video Card and see have the FAN stop working or if you have built-in Video Card make sure its working correctly

    Might be the DirectX, its known that newer versions (DX9.x) dont support older games (DX6.x games)

    Er..that has NOTHING to do with your video card.

    Search google for a no-CD patch for your version of the game. Problem solved.
