    OpenGL support is purely a function of the video card drivers, and
    not the OS. Contact the manufacturer of your video card to obtain the
    most recent WinXP-specific drivers.

    Have you tried re-installing the video drivers.

    Un-install the current video card drivers.

    Find and install Detonator R.I.P. (www.guru3d.com) so as to remove all
    traces of nVidia drivers.

    Reboot and let XP use the default VGA drivers.

    Download the latest WHQL certified drivers (www.nvidia.com).

    Download the latest DirectX 9 set-up (9c???) and install it. Reboot when
    asked

    Install the nVidia drivers and reboot.


    These steps should "clean" up any DirectX/OpenGL issues.
