Yeah like techychick said...do you have the latest drivers for your video card? AND...do you have the correct video drivers for the card? cuz thats always the problem...and if it continues try to find one on windows update or u might have to reinstall windows to see if u selected the rights ones....trust me...this happened to me 3 times....

Does your system support the following minimum requirements for playing the game?
800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse
Your motherboard has
Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 controller as the onboard graphics controller. Search the Internet whether it is capable of rendering the graphics in order to play the game and latest drivers for your onboard graphic card are installed.
You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep
Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family
of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors
ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences
ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)
Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz) Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+) Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz) Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz) Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+) Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz) Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+) Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)
I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)
