Just to highlight any issues, I have been trying to sort out problems for abouy 5 hours, went to the NV site and dowloaded drivers - was this wise, feel that this is not right for some reason and don't recall NV being my original.

Hi,

The problem is exactly what you said, the game does not support the GeForce4 MX. The game uses hardware features that are not in the GF4 MX.

Just to clear things out, the GeForce4 MX is in fact some kind of overclocked (faster) GeForce2, that have not of the features of the GeForce3 or 4 (vertex and pixel shaders to be precise). The GeForce4 MX is more of a low cost solution for desktop computers, not really for gaming.

That being said, the only thing I can recommend is to change your video card, sorry. I know it is quite costly, but in the end, you'll get smoother and better graphics in games.
