    This sounds like a video card driver issue... (drawing operation error) XP had problems with video cards early on... remove your driver, use a vga driver, restart... then install the detinators... hope that helps :)

    Same problem as I have I quess .
    Our motherboard does not support AGP4x wich is normally for GF4 series ( Leadtek GF4MX 440 here ) ; maybe this is the cause but first specify your Power Supply .

    Driver for GF .. ws unable to complete a drawing operation , please check manufacturer for driver update " .

    Any other driver (tried a lot) will not repair this even a bios update ..
