    Sounds like a driver problem I get those errors when GL driver is not supported by gf card driver or the DX driver needs updating. Tbh maybe some WOW players will know exactly what it is, but updated drivers of some kind required would be my guess.

    Check specs for WOW in manual that will give you a clue maybe.

    I was thinking more of the driver versions of the Glide driver which was not well supported by ATI cards and that gave me problems in the past. However there is almost always a workaround for commom problems like that :)
