GS Plugin Failed to Initialize
#1
Okay, I searched for this problem on the board for about an hour and read a lot of things that could possibly be causing this problem. I updated my Direct X, updated my Nvidia card and still nothing.

Pcsx2 loads up fine with no errors, and when I go to run a game, it first gives me an error about both memory cards not being able to load and then I select my game, it then asks

"Please update Direct X! Would you like to update Direct X?" I have hit yes before, but it still asks me to do so. After that it says "An unhandled or unrecoverable exception ocscurred, with the message: The GS Plugin failed to open/initialize. Pcsx2 will now close." Could it be my system specs?

I'm at a loss on how to get this to work.

Here are my specs:

OS - Windows Vista 32-bit
CPU -AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core Processor 2.10 GHz 1GB DDR
GPU - Nvidia GeForce 6150E nForce 430

delete the pcsx2 folder from your Hard drive and reinstall it.

no dice, completely removed and re-installed and I get the exact same error. should I switch to a different video plugin? Zero GS always worked for me when I was running 9.4.
