    Hi . Which graphics card do you have ?
    Is it the one in the title -- ATI Catalyst Radeon X1300/X1550 ?
    Do you have the right drivers for it ?

    It could be the graphics card is not 'good' enough to play the games you want to.
    If you have 1GB of RAM, you might think about fitting another 1GB as well.

    Ok, well if that is your card, then go to the site I showed the link to, enter your pc details, and download and install the driver.

    In your first post, you mentioned 'openGL' error on screen. If you are trying to use an Open GL graphic driver, you won't be able to use many Windows programs.
