    Update your video drivers.

    What iteration of Tomb Raider? Older versions couldn't even be played in Windows XP without installing user generated patches and even then it might not work.

    already got updated drivers from nvidea site (about 100meg file). the game is underworld, it works fine for maybe 5-10 mins (vista rates it at 4, my base score is 5. dxdiag attached if it makes sense to anyone.
