    reboot and restart your game again

    update your game with a patch

    and you can also try not to run to many applications in the backround while your playing a game. don't be doing alt-tab or be pressing windows key on the keyboard

    hope that helps

    That was quick reply...!

    Thank's i will try the patch olso if i was allready reading the informnations about taht patch and nothing let me think that can be usefull.
    i found a information about "my trouble" but is written in deutch language (quite hard for me to understand hi!) but i think to have understand taht can be directx trouble (and i have 9.a) or video card driver(but the other games taht request more "power" as 64mb 3d video are ok 100%.
    There is olso something else written but i can not understand it(maybe something aboiut settings in general before starting the game but not sure.By the way i will try to install the patch hopening to solve everything hopening by the way that somebody else with my same video card and trouble shoot is able to give me more help.
    Best regards

    The first thing you need to know when you look for help on the internet is the abbreviation FAQ. It means "Frequently Asked Questions". A good example is the Tomb Raider - The Angel Of Darkness FAQ thread in this very forum. It is even in English.

    i have seen it!

    that's ok GoranAgar i have seen that web page but dont help me.
    I usualy look before for faq because is the faster way to sort out troubles
    I think i just neade to finde somebody that haves my same video card ifnot i'm afraid i can not run the game.
    I got olso the DXDiag log of my system just having a look before posting it maybe that will be usefull.

    So you are running your graphic card with the 315v30755.exe driver, right?

    If not, get it here:

    After you installed that driver, reinstall DirectX9a. If you have that driver already just reinstall DirectX9a.
