    The Windows XP native (built-in) display drivers don't cut it for gaming.
    It's necessary to install current video card drivers from the manufacturer.

    If you post a DxDiag.txt using the Microsoft DirectX Diagnostic Tool,
    I will have an idea of what video card drivers are required.

    This is how to run the tool:

    Start > Run... > dxdiag > OK > Save All Information...

    Open the DxDiag.txt with Notepad and then copy and paste the text file into your post.
