I get graphic problems when running halo 2, the campain skips frames.

looked on halomaps said if i baught my comp though a OEM (Dell) i need to download drivers. But which ones do you think i need to download, i don't want to download them all if i don't need it.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=XPS_630I&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

also I have a Nividia 9800 GX2 geforce. on the dell site it listen a driver for that and other geforce cards. I downloaded all the drivers from nivida for my card do i still need to download the ones from dell for that card and the other ones.

if someone could look over that link and tell me what you think i need to download that would be great.

If you have the Geforce drivers from Nvidia you should not need the ones from Dell. You may need to adjust the settings in the Nvidia driver control panel. If there isn't a Halo2.exe setting you may need to create it.

Ansotropic filtering and Antialiasing mode should be set to Application Controlled
Comformant texture map - use hardware

The rest you may need to play with depending on your PC and performance.

right click on desktop>Personalize>display settings>Advanced settings>Geforce tab> start Nvidia Control panel.

Under 3D settings select "manage 3D settings". There should be 2 tabs: Global settings (standard settings for the PC) and Program settings (program specific settings).

On the Program settings tab should be a drop down with a list of pre-programmed settings. You can change it for each game or program so that it does not mess up the standard settings. You can add new programs from there as well.

If not then your driver is different than mine. I have a 8800GTX but all geforce drivers should be pretty much the same.

I think i know what it is now. I tried all the troubleshooting i could and there is one error left.

I think its because of the wireless mouse, something i didn't think about before. yea how stupid right. I am going to try to use a normal trackball mouse and see if it works then. wish me luck.
