Radeon 9200 Series causing Game Issues

  1. Hello. This is my first time here, and I'm not sure if this belongs here, but since it involves games, I thought I would post this here.

    These are my System Specs:

    Windows XP
    Professiona
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 2

    Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz
    2.80GHz, 256MB of RAM

    and a

    Radeon 9200 Series,

    which I think is causing the trouble. It is normal most of the time, but as for games:

    1) Need for Speed Underground 2:
    "speed2.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."

    2) LOTR- The Return of the King Demo:
    "Could not find any compatible Direct3D devices with the required capabilities. Make sure you have current drivers for your video card."

    3) Carmageddon 2 Carpocalypse Now Demo:
    "DIRECT DRAW:
    Ok
    Direct Draw not Presently Available
    DIRECT 3D:
    Dev[1] Primary Display Driver [display]
    Failed: Not Enough Memory
    3DFX GLIDE:
    Failed"

    4) Rise of Nations:
    "Graphics Services failed to initialize. Please make sure that your video card and drivers are correctly installed, and are compatible with Rise of Nations."

    5) Command and Conquer Renegade:
    Opens the Game Graphics and Audio Control Panel instead. Unplayable.

    ...
    These are the problems I have. What do I have that is wrong?
    I have already tried installing Direct X 9.0c/9.0b, 8.0.

    Possibly your graphics card driver needs updating.
