How do I reset OpenGL settings on my drivers?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.nvidia (More info?)

Some of the PC games I've tried running on my GeForce4 Ti4200 are
messed up. All I see are polygons, but the textures are non existant.
Everything's in one color only. I've tried everything from
reinstalling the latest NVidia drivers to reinstalling my OS. Nothing
helped. Now I'm told that I should try resetting the OpenGL settings
on the NVidia configuration screen.

I can't seem to find the right menu to do that. I right click on my
desktop, click properties, and go to
Settings->Advanced->GeForce4Ti4200. A menu shows up on the left side.
I would think that the OpenGL settings would be somewhere in there...
but I can't find it. All I see are:


GeForce 4 Ti4200
--Screen Adjustment
--Display Timing
--Performance & Quality Settings
--Color Correction
--Overlay Controls
--Troubleshooting
--NVRotate
--Refresh Rate Overrides
--Change Resolutions

Desktop Management
--Profiles

Screen Menus


I've spent a long, long time going back and forth between these
menus... and I can't find a way to reset the OpenGL settings. Any
ideas?

    The only way I know is in Performance and quality - Global driver settings -
    Restore.
    This restores the default settings for DirectX and OpenGL.
    However, if you have created custom profiles for any games in Performance
    and Quality settings, then they would need to be deleted so they would use
    the default settings...
