The only way to improve graphics is to upgrade your graphics card and ensure that you have enough system memory and proccesor power to run the game as it should do. If you have a 32MB or 64MB card then maybe you should go for atleast 128MB

My system hangs when i play game


Try upgrading the ram in the computer.  Most of the time it is because you are playing a high intensity game on a computer that is not built for it.  also try going into task manager and closing out anything you dont need.  in the processes, click user name at the heading of the items an it will list them out in order of user. You can usually shut off anything that is opend by your usernameexcept for explorer wich is windows itself and taskmanager wich is the window the processes are listed in.  While you are in there check to see if any programs are taking up excessive cpu usage and close them first to see if it fixes it.  alot of time i will look and firefox is using alot because of the multiple tabls i have open.  try these few things and if that doesnt help then i would suggest either a fresh install of the game or an upgrade in memory.

Graphics problem


You need to take the plunge...Go XPSP2. Many games and drivers have been written/upgraded to work with SP2. Your new driver have been written to work w/ SP2. Your machines overall performance will increase. Since you seem to be a gamer I would recommend increasing the amount of memory. But you definitly need to upgrade to XPSP2. SP2 is everything XP was supposed to be but wasn't ready! Good Luck, Tim
