My machine doesn't even know what 3D accelerator it's using (??).  This is 
just a shot in the dark but is there another video driver for your hardware that 
you can use?  It could be the cause of your odd dropdown issue.  I didn't pay much 
attention to it but I know that there are/were some hard times for people with 
an Intel video chip.  I'd also see if you could buy/borrow/steal a new hard drive and 
see if the same problems exist with an install on that, but that is also a shot in 
the dark.
