Yes, do make sure you have the latest drivers for both your video card and your motherboard chipset (such as the VIA 4in1 driver if you have a VIA chipset board).You might also try playing with the graphics and display settings some. I was getting some wierd issues with my GF4 Ti4200. The panels would look all corrupted and the game would lock up. Turned the game to run in 32bit instead of 16 bit (a setting I used with my old ATI Radeon 7500 for performance). I was also having a problem with anti-aliasing turned on in the game, so I changed the setting in my video card settings (not in the game) from "allow program to choose setting" to manually selecting 8x AA I believe. Works and looks terrific now. Just some ideas being thrown out there.
