Post subject:  Direct3D or openGL help with a NVIDIA 135m 256mb card

Please help, I couldn't wait to get this running on my new laptop, except when i try to run it, all the pre-in-game stuff loads and runs great (menus, pilot configurations etc.) but when i load a D2 mission (say lvl 1 or 2) Everything is white(non-textured?) and veryshortly after, it crashes.
Is there ANY way to get this to work with D3d? or anything i can DL for better OpenGL support for my video card?
I did find a patch for OSx for it called NVinstaller.com - 10.5.2 NV kext installer v.2
but it's for OSx =(

Driver update? D2X-XL doesn't use Direct3D so making OpenGL work is your best bet.

I have the latest drivers for my card, thanks for ur reply though.

EDIT: Okay, so apparently as long as i don't fire weapons and am ok with a non-textured game it runs fine, but even sliding left or right makes it crash, something about the lighting, i'll try changing lighting modes to see if that helps, any suggestions appreciated

EDITx2: Not sure what makes it crash now because i can fire weapons and it doesn't crash immediately. It has to be something important though because if i just look around in game i'm fine, it's after i move from the starting point that makes it crash?

And if you do, a little more system information would probably be necessary (e.g. OS - you're using Windows right? XP or something else? And the video card your laptop has is also important information).
