You need to do your sound card too and make sure Direct X is current.

Upgraded to XP HEEEELLLPPP

If thats upgraded as in "putting one OS on top of another", might as well throw you an anchor now and put you out of your misery. If you reformatted the hd with a clean install of XP, theres hope. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yes, I've heard that a fresh install of XP is better than an upgrade too, but hopefully it'll be sufficient to upgrade video, sound & chipset drivers to the latest versions - after using Windows Update to install the latest service pack & critical updates.

You might want to check that FB is running in XP native mode rather than Win98 compatible mode (right click on the program icon and check properties IIRC).

frag_bravo, yes, it is always better to do a complete reinstall of an OS, even if it is the same OS.

As stated, just get everything updated.

NOTE: You may even have things like mainboard USB drivers to update. Check everything.

Upgrades rarely work, usually cause driver problems, and tend to perform much slower (sometimes 10-25% I've read).

If you upgrade, go the extra mile...format the thing and wipe things out and start clean.
