Question about Computers & Internet
It sounds to me like you are using the XP graphic drivers, which, while adequate for basic desktop functions and games, but totally useless for higher end games requiring OpenGL. Have you updated your graphics card drivers from the cards manufacturers website? This will give you more control over your graphics card settings.
If you don't know what kind of card you have, right-click on you desktop, go to prperties/settings/advanced/adapter.
Take note of the model and driver version details, and then go to the website for that brand. Also make sure you have the right version of driver for your type of operating ssystem, otherwise it will give you more headaches ;)
Also you might want to check what version of DirectX you have installed. Barebone XP install comes with DX8.1( I think...don't quote me on that! ;) ), XP with SP2 bumps it up to DX9.0c. Updating DX will (supposedly) make your games run better.
Hope that helps. (I love AoM,btw)
Cheers from NZ.
P.S. Have a quick read of the readme.rtf file in your Aom directory, specifically the video troubleshooting section, and see if your card is on the 'not supported' list.
