    Hi,

    Welcome to TSG.

    First can you supply more info on your setup :

    CPU / Mobo / Ram / Graphics Card.

    Also -

    Are you closing down apps that are runing in the background ?

    Have you searched for later drivers for your graphics card ?

    Have you checked the actual main game website for any patches that have been released ?

    You might also get some useful feedback if you check HALO fansites as many have forums like this one where people report bugs, suggest fixes, etc ....

    what about sof2? have you tried playing it since you installed mc2 and halo?
    what version of dx were you running before you installed these 2 games? if you were running the latest dx and installed 9 on top of it, you could find yourself in all kinds of problems. :(

    V***V

    I have a 1.8Ghz, 1GB DDR Ram, Geforce FX 5200 128MB DDR Ram and sometimes it runs kinda slow. Well, it runs alright but it doesnt run perfect :) I think that it is your ram and cpu :D all i can suggest is upgrading or buying a new comp :D
