When I startup halo, the window "Gathering exception data..." comes up and then an error report comes up. Making me unable to play. I managed to get the EULA Agreement open and say yes, and then it opens Halo and then freezes.

Also after I did the EULA it said my system's video card was not good enough. It gave me the choices of, Continue Anways, Run in safe mode, Dont Run. I have tried all 3 and Halo will not run. I have played this game before on my computer about 2 years ago. I have updated my graphics card, only the MB were updated tho. Any ideas?

"Video Card: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller"

Doesn't sound like much of an upgrade to me. =/

He might mean virtual memory which borrows system memory to his video memory. All intergrated chipsets do that. They are also crap for gaming, there is nothing you can do other than buying a new PC or upgrading you're video card.

Well ive got a few questions first; My first is, has halo been updated since 2 years ago in terms of graphics? Also I can play Call Of Duty: UO and Age of Empires 3 just fine and they both ask for the same requirments and they're newer games.

No it's not been updated in terms of graphics but it has had a few update patches recently that may have changed how it performs but i have to agree with everyone else to really get it playing better i'd go with a separate Graphics card as integrated ones aren't really all that good for playing games especially the more recent games! And the games that you are mentioning are like 4 years old you really want to be able to run games that have just been released on a rig like that and i'd also go with more memory too even another gig would make a tremendous difference!

Agreed. Invest in a new graphics card if your motherboard has the right slots. Does it have an AGP slot?

And reading your specs again a new hard drive wouldn't do you any harm too as 36gigs nowadays is very small as most of the new games take more than 4 gigs at a time! Or in the case of Medieval 2 Total War 11 gigs! Now that's just getting silly! :dropsjaw:
