Hi artlink,

Well you're in the minimum required specs...

Try these:

Update your graphics drivers:
http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-uk

Update DirectX (9.0c):
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=35

Ensure you're using the latest service pack for your operating system, in your case, Service Pack 3 (SP3)

Windows updates (make sure your OS is fully updated):
[URL="windowsupdate.microsoft.com"/]windowsupdate.microsoft.com[/URL]
(This site will only work properly on Internet Explorer)

If the website doesn't work for you, you can go to your Start menu > All Programs > You should see Update Windows towards the top of the listing (Been a while since I've used XP, hope I'm right lol).

If it doesn't solve your problem, drop another post and we'll go from there. :)

Well, we're not at this point just yet. :)

Before we go ahead thinking about replacements, try reseating your hardware. Basically, taking the graphics card, memory and the CPU out, clean all of your slots/ports then place all your hardware back in. Its better if you have a can of air to do this, makes cleaning up hard to reach places easy. If not, blow over the slots and wipe over them with a duster.

... If you're not confident in doing this, you could take it to a PC store and get the tech guys there to do it.

I haven't heard of this game but you'll have to contact the publishers customer service about this.


If you are seriously considering another graphics card, have a look at the GTX 550 Ti. Quite a nice card for its price.

GeForce GTX 550 Ti

But most of games work properly like cod world at war,cod modern warfare 2,3,4 and moh and much more, still i have to blow and clean my card?

You mean my card has the ability to run cod black ops ,what about if i change the cd maybe its the CD doesn't work properly or something else.

Thanks for the help i did all the steps you told now my System works faster than before.

If it's running all the other games perfectly fine then no, you're right in thinking it's the game itself. So is it running fine or are you still having problems with it?
