In order to get the best performance out a device one needs to have the most current/latest drivers installed on your computer system. The latest drivers provide better performance because they enable your operating system to make better use of the device, this therefore means the device operates effectively.<br />
Today you will be learning to install the latest drivers for your graphics card, so your computer can run at a higher resolutions and give you the best performance available from your graphics card.<br />
The manufacturers of Graphics Cards are shown below, click the makers name to download the drivers.<br />
<a href="http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us"><span>Nvidia</span></a> Graphics Driver for <span>Nvidia</span> made Graphics Cards.<br />
<a href="http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx"><span>AMD</span></a> Graphics Driver for AMD/ATI Radeon made Graphics Cards.<br />
Select your Graphics Card model and Operating System.<br />
Download and install.<br />
Note: Only use the drivers provided for your make and model of graphics card!!!<br />
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.

THERE!!!! http://www.soft32.com/download_173342.html Here are the drivers. hope it works
I've located this description when installing the pentium 4 processor on Windows XP. If you have not performed these steps this may be the cause of what you are experiencing. To save you time I've pasted the section below-->
Operating System Support Nearly all modern operating systems designed for the Intel Architecture have support for the Pentium 4 processor, although some may require specific versions or processor support files. Many Microsoft operating systems like Windows* 98 SE, Windows NT* 4 with Service Pack 5, Windows* 2000, Windows* ME, and Windows* XP support the Pentium 4 processor. Linux* distributions based on the Linux* 2.4 core support the processor. Also, many other vendors have support for the Pentium 4 Processor in their operating systems. System integrators should verify that the operating system they have selected supports the Pentium 4 processor.
Note: Windows XP or certain versions of Linux are required for Hyper-Threading Technology2 support for the Pentium 4 processor. For additional information on integrating systems based on the Pentium 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, refer to the Integration Overview for Systems Based on the Intel Pentium 4 Processor Supporting Hyper-Threading Technology.
All operating systems that support the SSE instructions that were first introduced with the Intel® Pentium III processor will also support the SSE2 instructions introduced with the Pentium 4 processor. To experience the power of the SSE2 instructions, it is critical that system integrators install drivers and software that have been optimized for the Pentium 4 processor's SSE2 instructions. For example, for maximum system performance, system integrators using Microsoft operating systems that support DirectX* should load DirectX 8 (or higher).
Software Optimization With specific drivers that use the SSE2 instructions, graphics accelerators, audio hardware and software, and other system resources can experience substantial performance gain. It is critical that systems also use APIs that use SSE2 instructions to achieve maximum performance. Two examples are Microsoft's DirectX 8 (or higher) and Open GL 1.2 (or higher). Most major graphics accelerator vendors have optimized drivers that use the SSE2 instructions. Graphics card vendors typically highlight support changes with new driver releases. Download and install the latest drivers (dated later than October 2000) from the vendor's Web site. Also, verify that the driver version contains optimization for the Pentium 4 processor.
Many applications also use the SSE2 instructions to experience the breakthrough performance of the Pentium 4 processor. System integrators should contact software vendors to verify support and determine version information.
System performance is greatly affected by proper operating system and driver installation processes. For example, it is important to install the latest Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility immediately after installing most Microsoft operating systems to ensure proper drivers for the chipset are installed prior to installation of other drivers. System integrators should confirm boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems are optimally configured and integrated.
Conclusion Boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems require proper integration. System integrators that follow the guidelines in this document will experience higher customer satisfaction by providing higher quality systems.
Please let me know if you have success with this.
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
