I love skyrim and before my pc started acting up (it got stuck in an endless boot loop) I had been able to play it and the Sims 3 as well pretty much without problem. Because of the loop I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled windows XP 32 bit on my tower. (a Dell dimension 4550 with a Intel Pentium4 ) I managed to get all the drivers reinstalled but for some reason when I go to play skyrim the game gives me an error message saying "failed to initialize renderer".
My graphics card is a sapphire HD 3650 AGP but my computer when runing dxdiag.exe says it is a visiontek Radeon HD 2600 XT AGP
the name of my driver as stated in dxdiag is ati2dvag.dll vs 6.14.0010.7230
(oh my cpu is 2.53 GHz as well)
Thank you guys for any insight you have into this issue!
