RAGE won't launch.

Apparently everybody had this problem when RAGE first came out on PC, but I'm still having it. Patches, changing/making configuration files, uninstalling, reinstalling, rebooting, updating drivers- none of this has worked! I checked my specs, I should be able to run it fine, but as soon as I try to start up the game I get this console with an error "wglCreateContextAttribsARB failed".

Apparently, this suggests my graphics card is outdated- granted that my graphics card isn't the most state-of-the-art brand new thing or anything, but it's decent and it has enough memory and everything to run Rage- it runs literally everything else anyway including stuff like Arkham City no problem.

here's what the console says:

***************************
wglCreateContextAttribsARB failed
***************************
I've looked all over the Steam forums, I've googled the problem many times and all I've found is old information from when it first came out that was apparently fixed with the first patch.

Here's my specs:

Code:
Windows XP SP3
Intel Pentium D (3 GHz)
3.5 GB RAM
ATI Radeon X1950 (512 MB)
(RAGE's minimum specs)
Code:
Windows XP
Intel Core 2 Duo
2 GB RAM
265 MB Graphics Card
Any help is appreciated, it'd just be a shame if I couldn't play this game, I bought it brand new and everything

Uhhh

Get your money back....? I would hazard to guess that this is a legit version of the game and not a crack.

I can't, you can't get refunds for PC games (at least here you can't).
And yeah, it's a legitimate version of the game.
