    try game with minimal settings..
    make sure you have the latest drivers and direct x 9 etc..
    check your psu giving enough juice to the system: use a psu calculator to determine this.
    what is your full pc specs please? mobo, ram, cpu etc

    try updating directx to 9.0c
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...20-BFBB-4799-9908-D418CDEAC197&displaylang=en

    and also updating to the latest drivers for your video card here
    http://www.ati.com/products/radeon9200/radeon9200/index.html

    take a look on the side of your power supply unit (the box where you plug your electricity cable into the pc), what wattage does it read there? and what brand is it?
    when booting up, hit DEL or whatever key it is to go into SETUP (BIOS), use the arrow keys and find the Hardware Monitor/Sensor (place where it tells you the tempratures and voltages etc) post that here.

    can i also know how many drives (optical, hdds, floppys etc) you are running and any other devices attached like PCI cards etc.. you can just give summary of them or the make/model..

    by the way, if you have some cash lying about i suggest going add another 512mb of RAM to give more system headroom...
