I presume you are talking about Tomb Raider Legend?

If so, I think you will find that there are four gems with levers beneath them - you must activate all four to drain the water from the chamber.

Though you may get a more complete answer in the TR forums. Allow me to re-direct you. :)

welcome brilad. :)

assuming Peru (i.e. level 2 in Legend)

you've just left Anaya and entered the "tomb" by following the water ...

look around, there are actually 4 gems (i.e. located north, east, south and west).
it is easy to get disoriented here and the problem is compounded by time.
when you "pull" a gem you have a limited amount of time to pull the rest, before the gem resets.
this is not immediately obvious because all of this happens while Lara is struggling to avoid drowning!
if you come up for air then you effectively have to start over since the time wasted will reset the initial gem.

here's the strategy: :thumbsup:
1) become a proficient power swimmer ...
(i think this means press <jump> while swimming forward, to swim faster)
2) advance from gem to gem in a circular sequence while mantaining a constant water depth (i.e. shortest possible path).
3) don't worry about drowning, if you reach the last gem while running out of breath, the game will "rescue" you ...

here's the obligatory preaching: :)
1) the advice given above is like the proverbial fish given to a hungry man.
2) to be truly well, you have to learn how to fish for yourself.
3) in tomb raider this means, persistence, and possibly several rounds of replays in order to gather insights and skills, etc.

in any case, i wish that you will find Legend to be as enjoyable as i do!

raid on!
