Hi guys I have an urgent prob that keeps me from playing threewave... now before I'd occasionaly get a crash while loading the graphics that went like this

Quake3 has caused an error in nvopengl.dll

But now everytime I connect to a server while loading the graphics I get a crash with this error

Quake 3 has caused an invalid page fault in module %2at%3!.04x!.%4!.08x!.

What does this mean guys??? I've tried reinstalling quake3 updating point releases reinstalled threewave updated it to the latest patch, I've tried many of the detonator drivers but to no avail!!!
