I hate to keep bumping, but we have tried almost everything and still cannot get Halo to run properly. What's more is Thames' laptop is a newer Dell Inspiron laptop (got it a year and a half ago) and can play the game here and there but not all the time! I had a 2002 Dell Inspiron (do the math- it's two and a half years older than Thames' laptop) with an nVidia card and it ran Halo just fine!! Of course, I couldn't play with speculation or shadow or anything with eye candy but it played the game regardless with no freezes or scrambles. My laptop was a year older than Halo PC and could still run it LOL! Since we are able to play maybe once out of ten or so attempts at playing, I know that there is something buggy that needs to be fixed. If someone could kindly guide us in the right direction MUCH would be appreciated! Thames' laptop specs are up top and she also included the error message that she receives when she has to manually shut the comp. down after the freezing of Halo.
One more thing if she didn't mention above- we do NOT want to have to purchase a new video card for one game! Like I said- it does indeed work...we just haven't found the solution to make it work 100% of the time...
