    glfwOpenWindow fails with this code: http://pastebin.com/TcViLEqF . Without
    the hints, I get version 3.0 and everything succeeds. I've also tried hinting
    a core profile, and giving no profile hint, and those both fail with 3.2. I'm
    using an Nvidia GeForce 9800M GS.

    Anyone know why? Thanks for helping!

    Oh, and I should mention this is in Windows 7, 64-bit. And in both debug and
    release mode with Visual Studio 2010 I get the errors:

    "Unable to create OpenGL context
    Unable to re-create GLFW window"

    Nevermind. I was sure my card supported 3.2… but apparently it doesn't.

    Your 9800M should be able to handle OpenGL 3.2, but your drivers may be old or
    incomplete. Have you tried using up-to-date drivers?

    For example, this laptop has a 105M, which architecturally is very similar to
    the 9800M. and with up-to-date drivers it supports OpenGL 3.3.
