If this doesn't help, then the software drivers that Windows
uses to communicate with your hardware may be out of date, or
incompatible with the game. Install the latest DirectX compatible
drivers available for your video and sound card from the card's
manufacturer. If you have already updated to the latest driver
version from the manufacturer and the problem persists, you may
want to see if reference drivers are available from the video
chip manufacturer. Reference drivers are usually more standardized
than the manufacturer's versions and may work better with a wider
variety of games.
