Help does not say a lot. You problem I would say is your Graphics card is not up to the job

If you are running it on a XP machine, I would say a minimim of 1024mb., however you could try the following:

Right click on Desktop
Select Properties
Select Settings
Select Advanced
Select Troubleshoot
Reduce hardware acceration setting.

No guarantees, but it might help

so what kind of graphics card should i get. the one i have is built in i think. its a ATI RADION XPRESS 200 SERIES

First Go into BIOS and check it as full Memory utilised for the in built graphics, i.e if it will go to 128mb then enable it to do so. Other than that you motherboard as to have a extra AGP or PCI extra socket to use a Card. I doubt you would get a plain PCI card and if you did it would not be up to much with modern games
