Reinstall your video drivers. Also make sure that in 'Display Properties', your hardware acceleration level is set to 'Full'. Confirm that all DirectX / 3D features are enabled in 'dxdiag' as well. Make sure you have at least 32+MB of VRAM.

Check your display properties from control panel. Your mobo has integrated gpu, ati 9100 with 128mb max. Go to Bios at boot, and raise video memory to +32mb. It will be taken from your system Ram so don't too high, because VC needs 386mb if I right remember. Also download and install the latest possible drivers from ati.
P4R800-V has got also APG 8x slot, but I'd be guessing yours is empty. You can check it from display properties, or by opening the case. From Bios You also select between integrated graphics or agp video card.

That's not really true, as I used to play this game quite well on a VIA/SIS video card with 32MB vram...Played III and SA quite well as well on that same card...lol tounge2.gif

On-topic-What is your Video card? To find out, go to Start, Run and type in DXDIAG and press Enter, then click the Display tab and it will show the Video card information.

This is an old bumped thread--

@ MODDER--- please start a new thread (so helpers don't confuse the info being provided (like Radioman just did wink.gif )... people can have similar problems but the solutions may be different based on your system and set up.

Please post all your systems specs... be as specific as possible.. especially hardware-- video, ram, cpu, and OS

Also provide history-- did the game work before, is it modded, etc... the more info you can provide up front, the faster you can get you problem solved....

I am going to lock this--
