Default Halo In-Game Chat

I've scoured the internet for a solution to this but to no avail. so here's hoping.

I cannot chat in Halo, during multiplayer games. When I type "T" I see the grey chat box, but if I type the text doesn't appear. When I push enter, the text box dissapears.

In addition, information such as "New001 killed New002" isn't shown or "New003 has joined the game" - that sort of thing.

Some sites seem to think this is to do with my graphic card (NVidia GeForce2 MX 400), others say reinstalling msxmlenu.msi should do the trick. Other say buy a new computer (bit extreem, I think).

The chat text did use to work, though I'll be damned if I can remember what has changed since then. I literally think that one day it worked and one day I noticed that it didn't. I've tried reinstallation, I've even reinstalled windows (unrelated), I've updated, back-dated my drivers for sound, video, directx... nothing...

Anyone else got a clue, or share this problem?

is the txt displaying but is off the bottom of the screen, i.e. have you tried different resolutions in the games graphics setup?
