Default Quake4 and RIVA TNT2 Model64

Received Quake4 for a Christmas present, and installed it on
my Sony Vaio PC running Windows XP SP2 ( home edition)
512M memory, and a RIVA TNT2 Model64 video card with
32M of memory.

The install went smoothly, no errors or warnings, howver
when I click on Quake4, and try to run it, my screen blanks
for 3-5 seconds, and my Windows desktop re-appears.

Quake4 requires updated video drivers that support
ActiveX9.0c, which comes with the Quake4 cd.

Does my video card support ActiveX9.0c ?

In searching the archives I found a thread on someone
asking for the person to run DXdiag. <snip below>

It appears that I have the DXdiag in multiple locations on my PC, but
I ran the DXdiag that was located in my c:\WINDOWS\system32\
sub-directory

I am assuming this is a video card issue.
Are there newer drivers that I should try to download or
should I just buy a newer video card ?

Thank you

Here is the DXdiag snip
