From where????

MSI's Website, or nVidia's website


Things to update.
1. The game. Are there any new patches for it.
2. Video card Driver? If it's from MSI, then go to nVidia's website for the driver. If it's from nVidia, then I go to MSI's website.
3. Direct X 9

Finally, is this only game that it crashes on, or are there other games that crashes.

Can you expand on the descriptions about the crashes? When does it happen? During a game, when you watch video, while using any certain program? Nvidia's latest driver is 53.03, is that what you're running?

it might be a problem with winxp...

I'll have to just re-install it. it's not so much the games that crash the system, since I don't really play any. It's more like MPEGS and Lightwave...and all the drivers are the latest from MSI and Nvidia...
