I have a strange problem, opengl seems to have died on my computer. Any program that uses opengl won't run and when I try to debug some of my apps, wglCreateContext always fails and the GetLastError is something like a dll can't init. So I looked to see if opengl32.dll was missing and it wasn't.


Btw, i reinstalled my drivers about 5 times

I had the same problem (Radeon 9800 Pro) - to fix it I had to use the catalyst removal util ( ) and then reinstall. Also make sure you don't have a sysogl32.dll in your windows/system32 directory.

Checked for the sysogl32.dll and I don't have it. And I forgot to say I have a GeForce4 440 Go (laptop).

In case anyone cares, I fixed my problem. Turns out MatLab went crazy and was causing all my grief. Reinstalled it and everything works fine now.
