    Sounds like it could be a monitor refresh rate problem.
    What frequency is your monitor running at? With XP and 2000 there are known issues with games running frames per second locked to the monitor refresh rate. I'm not sure if this is now fixed in some way by the latest Detonator drivers from Nvidia as I now have an ATI card and haven't read much about Detonators lately.

    Oh and welcome to TechSpot forums :wave:
