I see your problem. America's Army likes to be run on a powerful computer, it will often give you critical errors or otherwise if you have bad hardware. I used to get constant errors with my geforce 4 mx420. I'm not sure if your video card meets the minimum requirements but I would personally recommend a new video card. Glad to see there is another AA player on these forums besides me.

Did you try using a driver cleaner and installing the 66.93 drivers?

Than if this fails to work, try installing their beta drivers.

Google for the nvidia driver cleaner as well.
